I installed Kubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, 32-bit as a virtual machine (VMWare Workstation Player 15). My main system is Lubuntu 18.04.2. LTS, 64 bit. That´s been a success at first.
I rebooted several times and performed all available updates which also went well.
Yet after that I´ve got a problem.
When trying to boot Kubuntu now I just get into the virtual terminal TTY1. It does not boot into the GUI any more.
After quite some research I found some sort of workaround on the page https://askubuntu.com/questions/436546/ubuntu-12-04-boots-to-tty1 .
By applying the command startx in TTY1 I get into the GUI and everything works fine. But I shouldn´t be supposed to do this and the GUI should start anyway.
Does anyone know why that is and what can be done about it?
Thanks a lot in advance.
