I've been using Linux systems for years now and wanted to try Kali Linux as my next. I've been using Backtrack before as well and never experienced errors.
However, I just installed Kali and boot up in terminal only mode. When I try
startx, it goes black for some while, then displays
Oops! An error which couldn't be rescued was experienced. Please contact the system administrator.
(or something like this). When I do
gdm3, it tells me
Failed to connect to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory
Some other stuff:
- I tried
service start dbus, however it starts but seems like it exits immediately.
- I also tried to install
lightdm, when I enter lightdm then, I get a black screen.
