Thread: user gnome or kde desktop broken with black screen

    Default user gnome or kde desktop broken with black screen

    Hello,

    I was using the NVidia propietary drivers and tried to revert back to the open source driver. It did not work, so I reinstalled the NVidia driver again.

    When I log into my account in Gnome or KDE, the desktop is black. However, when I log into my root account, everything works fine with gnome.

    I tried creating a temporary account and with this new user account, I also get a black screen.

    What would be the best course of action?

    How exactly did you install the driver?

    Please post /var/log/Xorg.0.log and the output of glxinfo (package Mesa-demo-x) run as user.
