Check grub config too, a setting in it may have disabled graphical interface too.

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, TonyThanks for your swift reply, Floris; much appreciated.Things you could try: - Is systemd set to boot into graphical mode? $ systemctl get-default graphical.target If you get an other output run: # systemctl set-default graphical.targetYes, I'm seeing that response.- Reconfigure gdm3 and make sure gdm is the default display manager # dpkg-reconfigure gdm3 $ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager /usr/sbin/gdm3I should have said I'm using KDE, so I guess gdm stanzas are inappropriate. Anyway, I'm seeing: $ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager /usr/bin/sddm Should I dpkg-reconfigure that? Cheers, Tony
