Welcome to the new Linux Foundation Forum!


I just got this new acer system with linux pre-instatlled OS, i find it difficult to get to the desktop. there is no CD with this system to guide me through to how to handle this system. please i need help, what should i do as i am stuck and confused. see pix below.


  • To get to the desktop, type startx. If that doesn't work, try going to the Arch Wiki. However, there may not be a desktop or window manager. You've got a long way to go for Linux.
  • What is the Acer Model? Are you sure that is Linux? Some models come with DOS or without OS. The stupid guys at Electronic shops say this is a Linux.
