I have a really broken up computer, the LCD screen is internally cracked and the WiFi doesn't work. I have a live Ubuntu CD that I wanted to try, to see if I like Ubuntu as much as Debian on other devices. I put the live CD in and it worked and booted the Ubuntu terminal.
The problem with this is that the computer would normally display the data over HDMI. Is there a way to display the terminal or start the GUI other than
startx which I cannot see the output of. I do believe the dc has the GUI as when i checked the files it had some Ubuntu images for the background.
