I was running back-track kali through ISO file. Till then it was all fine and showing all features like Desktop and other GUI which it provides.

After installing, it is showing only the CMD terminal and no GUI or other features.

While installing, I remembered it asked:

During installation the system will ask whether you want to use network mirror or not

I chose yes. Is this the reason for this issue?

  • If your question is about Backtrack, tag Backtrack, and don't tag Kali. Commented Nov 28, 2015 at 1:25

Have you tried the command startx. The default username is root and the password is toor. Can you specify if your using backtrack or kali, as they are two different releases, with kali being the newer one?

  • @vivek, when I installed kali, it did most of the work for me. I don't have to use startx to login, when I boot up it takes me to I believe the gnome gui login.

  • I installed it using Install Kali option under Applications when it was running from ISO file. After that when installation completed it is showing only the cmd terminal. I am a complete newbie to linux, so no idea what is wrong.

  • @vivek, unfortunatley I'm no expert myself, but keep trying things and i'm sure you'll figure it out. Don't be afraid to make a mistake.
