Do you have xorg or xserver installed?

dpkg -l | grep -iP 'xorg|xserver'
sudo apt-get install xorg

Open in new window

Some things to check.

Have you installed all the necessary X fonts?
Is your video driver up to date and properly installed?
Have you checked your logs for X errors?

run "tasksel" and make sure at least one of "Dektop" or "Live" options is selected (feel free to install tasksel if you did not when installing the system)
