    Default OpenSUSE GNOME version, blank screen with mouse on login.

    Good day, all. After a recent update, one of my computers now displays a black/gray screen with a mouse cursor once I log into gnome. tty works fine. other window managers work fine. Graphics driver works fine. I've tried renaming gnome config files so gnome could regenerate them, problem persists. I don't know where any gnome logs are.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Hi
    What graphics driver? Are you running extensions? If you create a test user and login to the Gnome Shell for the test user does it work?

    Nvidia Proprietary driver. A few small extensions, yes. I haven't tried a test user yet, I will report back when I get the chance.
    Thanks, Malcolm.

    It is the latest driver, 390.25-4.1
    Uninstall it and use the opensource until its updated. Some had success with re-installing the driver, but I didn't. See also:

    I read that adding your user to the video group is a workaround.

    Yet, not for me. Already was a member of the video group.

    When I get back to the computer, I will try all of those. I'll let you know which, if any, works.
    Thanks, folks.
    Take care.

    First thing I tried was the video group, worked like a charm. Thanks, Ricochet!

    I'm afraid I won't be undoing it and trying the others, though. I've learned to let things be when they work -- in some cases.

    Take care!
