As I've stated before, I am new to Linux and am trying to find resources or instructions that work to stop and start x server. This is more for the experience than anything else at this time.
I have tried su - > password > init 3 and I get the black screen and to login which succeeds, then I type init 5 and it outputs "failed to issue method call: Access Denied
Am I using the wrong syntax or something? Or is it to do with my proprietary (akmod) nVidia drivers?
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
