    You can’t boot? What did you do? What does it have to do with Xorg or LDM?

    That is what I was going to say, neither of those are bootloaders or initd :D

    Probably stupid question but you 100% have the correct driver for your graphics card? or hardware?

    You think wayland would do better ? Haha. Im pretty sure its driver issue or you fucked up something.

    Wow that is a lot of comments on that thread is there seriously that many different issues with graphics on Ubuntu?

    My guess is you need to ensure you have mesa, opengl etc installed as well. Some not so maintained DM's don't have all the proper dependencies installed correctly.

    @abhinavr888 but you can boot right?
    Ctrl + Alt + F2 gives you a shell, right?
    Then try the suggested answers. I had a similar thing some years ago and reinstalling the desktop worked

    @Haxk20 it had been working well for a month. It's some update that fucked it up

    @Bitwise yes. Nvidia drivers, worked fine for a month or so

    @RantSomeWhere tried most of them already. Nothing helps. To think I saved up for ages to buy this machine is frustrating

    @abhinavr888 reinstall distro?
    It’s definitely not your computers fault (except if you’re on NVIDIA)

    @RantSomeWhere it is NVIDIA. I was thinking of removing all nvidia libraries and drivers, so that the os picks up on my intel graphics again

    Probably some obscure configuration setting for nVidia.

    @abhinavr888 If you have intel graphics too and are okay with not using your nvidia card, just put

    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist nvidia

    in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf by first switching to TTY (ctrl+alt+f2), then logging in as root and running

    # echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    # echo "blacklist nvidia" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    and then

    # reboot

    @abhinavr888 If it doesn't work after that, try running

    # mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
    # reboot

    I have been using Ubuntu for about 3 years now. In this time I've tried switching to Nvidia drivers about 10 times - tested drivers. And I swear to god, fuck you Nvidia because it has never worked. Trust the good old drivers and don't ever use Nvidia drivers.

    @kenogo didn't work :(

    @abhinavr888 Okay you can message me at telegram if you want (username is kenogo) and I can try to continue helping there. There's still some things I need to know but I don't think it's useful to spam the comments here. Instead it'd be better to just return here with the solution.
