While browsing thru FF, it crashed and I guess brought the X down with it.
gdm start from tty1.
Now I was prompted for username pwd etc.
I guickly selected unity 2D and then logged in.
Now things are ok in U2D.
1 issue I am now facing is that the max/min and close buttons are not seen
(neither on left, nor on right side).
But then thats easy to find out on the net.
