After reading your post, and having done the updates, but not rebooted yet, I went in and installed lightdm.dasdas wrote:Hi guys, finally got some issues tracking testing
So after the last update if I try to start any session from MDM (either Cinnamon, Cinnamon 2D, Classic Gnome) I only get a black screen with a mouse pointer which works.
If I switch to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), log in and run startx, Cinnamon starts just fine. I have looked in in /var/log/syslog and no errors there.
In ~/.xsession-errors I get this but I can't figure it out:
If anyone has some ideas/advice, I'm all ears.
Once installed, I told Linux I wanted lightdm as default.
I rebooted, holding my breath and lightdm started up.
Logged in, and was off to the races in Mate.
This is a possible work-around for mdm.
