Re: help

This is not the appropriate mailing list for help requests. Please try
directing further questions to debian-user@lists.debian.org For other
ways of getting help please have a look at
http://www.debian.org/support, where you can find pointers to
newsgroups, forums, and irc channels.

Now, regarding your problem. As far as I can tell from your email, you
either have not installed some window manager or desktop environment
(like Gnome or KDE) which is available with Debian, or simply have not
started them. To check if the problem is the second just try to execute
the "startx" command at the "$" prompt.

By the way, the "$" sign is indeed the "prompt", a character that
denotes that the system is waiting for some textual command from you.

Hope this helps.
