Hi! I’m stuck in a login loop on Ubuntu 16.04.
I had been using version 418 with no issues for a while, but today I tried to update to version 430 to see if it would help with an issue I had with a new monitor. To update, I selected version 430 under the “Additional Drivers” in ubuntu’s software update center.
Upon rebooting, I found I was stuck in a login loop (successful logins return me back to the login screen). I then logged in through tty1 and purged the drivers (
apt-get autoremove --purge nvidia*), rebooted, and was able to successfully login.
Next, I went back into the “Additional Drivers” section and selected the original version 418 so I could at least keep using nvidia drivers. However, upon rebooting, I’m stuck back in a login loop. Any idea what I should try next?
