Cinnamon 2D black screen after login

Postby manilodisan on Sat Feb 02, 2013 12:27 pm

I had this one working a couple of weeks before I decided to install the latest nvidia driver from nvidia website. Now I can't log in to cinnamon 2D because all I get is a working mouse over a black screen. Normal cinnamon or mate session work just fine. If I try to uninstall the nvidia driver and install "nvidia-current" it's same story so I cant even revert back.

Checking the syslog I get the following:

Code: Select all
Feb  2 18:15:06 monstru gnome-session[4069]: Gdk-WARNING: gnome-session: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :1.#012
Feb  2 18:15:06 monstru mdm[4039]: WARNING: mdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :1
Feb  2 18:15:06 monstru goa[4388]: goa-daemon version 3.6.0 exiting [main.c:154, main()]

I digged this forum all over without a solution so far. My PC specs are:

I7 3930K Sandy Bridge
Nvidia GTX 690

Cinnamon versionL 1.6.7
