    Hi,

    I have a udoo-quad.
    To it an svga monitor is connected via an hdmi-to-svga adapter.
    In the bootloader, I set the resolution to 1024x768 (or else it would do 1920x1080 which my monitor does not support).
    As software I installed the Ubuntu image from the udoo-site (version 12 iirc).
    When things start I see the bootloader message with the udoo-logo and then I see Linux start upto (and including) the login prompt.
    The X-environment won't start though. It shortly blanks the screen during boot and then goes back to the textual login-prompt. Usually this happens when it cannot start X for some reason.
    Xorg does not log any errors, only warnings:
    Code:
    root@udoo:~# grep -e WW -e EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    	(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
    [   240.197] (WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic" does not exist.
    [   240.197] (WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/" does not exist.
    [   240.197] (WW) The directory "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi" does not exist.
    [   240.197] (WW) The directory "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType" does not exist.
    [   240.206] (II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
    [   240.254] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for vivante
    [   240.472] (WW) evdev: USB Optical Mouse: ignoring absolute axes.
    [   240.480] (WW) evdev: HID 04f3:0103: ignoring absolute axes.

    Any ideas?

    Please close this topic: the problem was lightdm being somewhat broken due to uninstall of gnome.
