Everything went well on the upgrade to Linux Mint 19 and was stable using the already installed Nvidia 390 Drivers. A notable exception is that the upgrade failed originally because `dbus-x11` wasn't going to be configured in the upgrade process and `gconf2` depended on it.
I switched to the Nouveou driver so that it wasn't being used. Ran `apt purge nvidia* && apt purge libnvidia*` to get rid of everything, then added the ppa and ran `apt install nvidia-driver-396`
On reboot now LightDM appears to crash, that is, there is only a black screen. I can however type in my password and it gets me to the desktop where the driver appears to be working perfectly. Driver Manager says it's currently the selected driver but Steam won't even launch because of the error "glXChooseVisual failed".
Where are the logs stored for LightDM? Is the driver just not loading for LightDM? I guess it's technically usable for now.
EDIT: The currently installed packages are from the ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
Code: Select all
libnvidia-cfg1-396:amd64 install libnvidia-common-396 install libnvidia-compute-396:amd64 install libnvidia-decode-396:amd64 install libnvidia-encode-396:amd64 install libnvidia-fbc1-396:amd64 install libnvidia-gl-396:amd64 install libnvidia-ifr1-396:amd64 install nvidia-compute-utils-396 install nvidia-dkms-396 install nvidia-driver-396 install nvidia-kernel-common-396 install nvidia-kernel-source-396 install nvidia-utils-396 install xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-396 install
Thanks in advance for the help.
