I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.
Everything was fine until I did a fresh install of a proprietary driver for NVIDIA, using the "Additional drivers" utility. After having restarted my computer, I cannot access to my session as usual anymore.
Different things can happen:
- It starts under Ubuntu GNU GRUB with Linux 3.2.0-26-generic-pae, and it looks like a terminal, I can log in and all.
startxgives me weird colored patterns on the screen and keeps frozen.
- It freezes immediately with the weird patterns, or with just a purple screen and my cursor after showing the "Ubuntu" login purple screen.
- Or it shows the usual login screen, but completely deformed, and unusable.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-current to fix my problem, but it didn't work.
Could you help me please ?
