So, I wasn't using Linux for awhile (I was playing a lot of non-Linux games) and came back to Linux once I started getting back into my development work.
I rebooted my computer, and everything started up OK. I logged in, tried to open Konsole and found myself back at the login screen. I proceeded to try the KDE menu, also back to login screen. After either of these scenarios, I could not restart from the login window, but had to use a TTY and
I should note, I could open Firefox, Dolphin and show the plasma widgets for networking, but anything else that I got to try failed.
I wish I could give a bit more information, but here is going off what I know:
- Nvidia card running proprietary drivers (dual monitor setup, GTX 460 Fermi)
- AMD CPU
- Using wired internet through motherboard
- Linksys Wireless card installed, although not used
- Kubuntu 13.04 installed
- All packages are up-to-date, standard install + steam, few games, and C++ developer tools
- Kernel upgrade failed to the most recent update, not sure why
- kubuntu-backports repository is installed for most recent Qt version (needed for projects)
- Restarting the computer, multiple times
- Regenerating xorg.conf through nvidia-settings
~/.kdeto bring it all back to stock
- Installing newest edition of
kscreen, that made the least changes of all of them..
I'd really like to avoid a complete reinstall as getting back custom settings is annoying, and downloading all the software is a bit of a load on my network (there's about 75GB of softwares I'd have to redownload).
Any help is appreciated!
