Cinnamon crashes after NVIDIA driver update

Post by ngelfant » Wed Jan 31, 2018 4:11 pm

Yesterday I updated my NVIDIA driver to 390.25 on my Mint 17.3 64bit installation.

When I boot up and login, I get a black screen that says cinnamon has crashed. Is there anyway to solve this without reverting to Xorg since I want to have the actual drivers for my 940M video card? Thanks in advance!
