[Bug 1488422] [NEW] Recovery from 'display cannot be detected' does not work properly


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

This morning I got a 'display cannot be determined' popup when I booted.
On hitting Enter I got another popup with a menu prompting for an
action. However I had no mouse pointer and the keyboard did not respond
to Space, Tab, arrows or Enter so I could not actually make a choice.
Hitting Escape got me out of it and the machine continued its boot
sequence, but with errors and without a display manager.

After logging in on a text console I ran 'startx' with no problems.

Why I got the error in the first place is another question. It is possible that I did not switch on the monitor early enough :-)

Severity: not something that a newbie would be able to handle.
