Today I just decided to install Kali Linux 2.0.

The installation finished successfully.

I don't know what's wrong with it.

  1. The ctrl+alt+F1 is working and the mouse is working.
  2. I've tried to change Automaticloginenable=true.

  3. I've tried to run in the GAU/Terminal:

I'v solved this problem by installing lightdm.

apt-get install lightdm 

Then will ask you to choose lightdm or gdm3.

Choose lightdm and reboot.
