Another noob here. I was given a 2005 era MacMini and decided to stretch my Linux skills (ha!) by installing it on the Mini. By following the procedure here http://www.mintppc.org/content/installation-mintppc-8 I was able to load Debian Lenny PPC, and then d\l the Mint distro. Problem is after the final re-boot, I get the command line instead of the GUI (don't judge me, I'm moving slowly to command line skill). The only thing I could think to try was startx after logging in, and that didn't work. Before actually burning this on the HDD I tried a PPC "live" disk of Ubuntu, which DID go to the GUI, but I just can't stand Unity. So! Any ideas\advice on getting the GUI on this thing?

You probably need a working xorg.comf file.
