I just downloaded and installed the Ubuntu 11.10 on Virtual Box. It worked fine and gave me a nice GUI desktop at the end of it. I then had a problem with host rebooting (seems to be related to 64-bit hardware virtualisation), so I installed VMware Viewer.
Now, when I installed with VMware I end up with a command prompt, not a GUI. Why is that?
And how do I get from the command prompt to the desktop?
