    Exclamation I'm able to login to GUI using root user but not from any other user. Seems Xserver issue

    Hi,
    Opensuse Leap 42.3 x64
    Yesterday, after a system upgrade i.e. sudo apt-get upgrade, I restarted my system. After that, whenever i am entering my login credentials (other than root) on the login screen, screen is getting black, and its redirecting me to the login page again. Couldn't find any working solution. But, when I logged in as root user, I got the desktop and its working normally. I tried creating other user from root who are standard users and tried logging and they too have the same issue.

    Following is the output of some log files:

    I have Nvidia bumblebee installed with Geforce 940MX which was working fine before this upgrade.
    My system is an Asus R558U with intel Core i7, 8GB ram and 1TB HDD.

    Please help me with this issue, I'm new to linux environment.

    Thanks,
    Amulya

    Default Re: I'm able to login to GUI using root user but not from any other user. Seems Xserver issue

    We don't use aptitude (apt-get) in openSUSE, we use an RPM package and package management system.
    Also, I don't know for sure if you really attempted an "upgrade" which in openSUSE means migrating from one major release to another or an "update" which are only minor changes but staying within the same major release.

    If your root partition is BTRFS, try rolling back to before your attempted upgrade and reboot.

    You can also run a DVD for whatever openSUSE version you're running (again, are you upgrading or updating?), run and "upgrade" which should re-install your system... then <update> your system afterwards to install current versions of files.

    If any of what I described is unclear, post again with your question,
