Restart GDM on Ubuntu

Of late after the Kernel update on my Ubuntu, the GDM would not load up correctly.

I cannot click on Terminal, or shut down the system graphically.

I found a work around on this link It as simple as restarting the GDM








sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

If you wonder where to typed in this, Press CTRL+ALT+F1

A big thanks to "Doug_" I have edited the file as sudo user /usr/lib/vmware/webAccess/tomcat/apache-tomcat-6.0.16/conf/tomcat-users.xml

and added in these three lines.





Then restarted vmware with the command

$sudo /etc/init.d/vmware restart

Wola it started working once again.
