From console to GUI


(Daniel) #1

Hello i have a problem … i updated my parrot this mornig and now when i start my computer after choosing parrot in grub it boots directly to console. I know that it may be stupid question but how can i access the gui version? I tried nearly everything i found on internet. I am runnig latest version of parrot in dual boot with Windows 10. Any suggestions?

please post your hardware specs to include graphic, any updates and modifications you’ve done recently and what version of parrot you are running
(use uname -a to find out)
and if you are using security or home.

My graphic hardware is Intel Corporation Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display. Cpu: Intel Pentium CPU N3530 2.16GHz. I have not done any changes just run sudo apt-get update and then upgrade and after rebooting it does not starts to gui. The output of uname -a is: Linux parrot 4.19.0-parrot1-20t-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 4.19.20-2parrot1.20t (2019-03-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux and i am using security edition i think.

Try to run startx, if it crashes tell us what’s the error.

ahhh yeah because parrot linux is a rolling distro you can’t use apt-get upgrade or it will damage your system. you might have to reinstall please try:

sudo parrot-upgrade

and then reboot and see if it fixes the issue

None od these worked but i think that it might be caused by my network driver or something like that because ifconfig shows me just lo not wlan0 or eth.

I finally decided to reinstall whole OS so the problem is solved i guess.

yeah once you use apt upgrade because of how apt manages packages it really screws things up so reinstall is always recommended.
