I'm using a Raspberry Pi model B (512 MB RAM) with the following touch screen and the latest image of Raspbian. The screen drivers are ok, since I can see the loading screen and the tty. If I plug in a keyboard, all is fine (textual, but fine).
The problem is that the GUI isn't loading. I have configured the automatic GUI and login through
raspi-config, I think all the necessary packages have been installed (following this post), but it doesn't work. After the booting information I am stuck with a black screen with a fixed (not blinking) cursor on the top left corner.
service lightdm stop brings the cursor blinking,
service lightdm start gets it fixed again.
Seems to me that the X server has started correctly but I'm on the wrong virtual terminal; I have tried using
chvt on all the terminals from 1 to 12 without success. Log files
Xorg.0.log don't show any error (at least, none I can mark as error), but I can provide them if needed.
I've run out of option, can you help me?
