Re: system boots to terminal

Since upgrading Jessie to Stretch, I find my system boots to a terminal,
instead of a desktop. I can log in, run startx, and the desktop then
appears. I then need to log in again.

So, how do I get my system to boot straight to the desktop?

Cheers, Tony

Things you could try:

- Is systemd set to boot into graphical mode?
$ systemctl get-default

If you get an other output run:
# systemctl set-default graphical.target

- Reconfigure gdm3 and make sure gdm is the default display manager
# dpkg-reconfigure gdm3
$ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager
