A newbie to Linux here.
I installed Elementary OS and it goes smooth. First reboot after installing boots to a login prompt of Pantheon desktop, logs me in and works fine. The next boot takes to a terminal screen login. My login id and password work fine. But no GUI. Why is it happening and how to change to boot to Pantheon again?

  • What happens if you press Ctrl+Alt+F7? (or any other of the Function keys) Does it show pantheon again?. If it doesn't, execute this command from that login prompt: sudo apt install elementary-desktop – Maccer Oct 15 '19 at 20:12
