How to reconfigure Wayland? -Fixed
« on: 2020/11/16, 21:23:26 »
Hello

I am running my second system with a Nvidia Geforce.
I tried to install an old nvidia driver - and now neither the xserver is running nor wayland.

Is there a chance to reconfigure the system (as root) in a way that wayland is running again.

The display manager is lightdm

Regards

Without relevant logfiles, no one can help you!
And with nvidia blob you can't run wayland.

Hello

A
Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove --purge nvidia-*

 sudo apt reinstall task-xfce-desktop

 sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

 sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

sudo apt install reinstall linux-image-$(uname -r) initramfs-tools initramfs-tools-bin

and a reboot did it


Regards

You know, xfce has no wayland support?
