comment Unable to login during boot without reinstalling Graphic drivers
Hi Michael, just an update for you on what I tried: I dropped back to onboard graphics (which worked fine), and while there were a stack of updates from the xorg-edgers repository, it only seemed to help slightly with the GTX970 back in. I can see the glowing "kubuntu" logo on boot, and while there's no visible greeter screen, but if I logged in (typing blind), I could see the desktop at maybe 800x600 resolution. But no updates to the screen after that. So...not much luck unfortunately. :(

comment Unable to login during boot without reinstalling Graphic drivers
I'm having the same problem as of a few days ago (on Kubuntu 14.04), I was already using the xorg-edgers repo to get the GTX970 going initially. It seems to correspond time-wise with the 0-46 kernel update, but booting back into an older kernel (eg 0-40) didn't help at all. Last time I had to pull the GPU and use onboard to fix it -- I suspect I might need to do this again.

comment How to remove ttf-mscorefonts completely?
+1, all I had to do was the first step (although I used "purge" instead of "remove") and restart my browser to get rid of the uglified fonts that corefonts installed (using Kubuntu 14.04).

comment “Open containing folder” in Firefox does not use my default file manager
Identical issue in Kubuntu 14.04, this fixed it. In KDE it's Default Applications -> File Manager.

comment How do I get my blacked out ttys back?
As per guidelines (askubuntu.com/help/reopen-questions) this is a "Please reopen" request. I don't believe this is too localized -- it happens on all my machines with nVidia proprietary installed. "Unlikely to help future visitors" is incorrect: I am a future visitor, and I'm certainly hoping the answers will help me fix this exact problem. I don't think the question needs to be edited or reworded, it perfectly describes the issues I have.

comment Intel NUC No Sound over hdmi
It's been a while since I've used Alsa, I think you need to press F6 and select the HDMI device and make sure it's enabled?

comment Lubuntu : session won't open : where to find the logs
Hmm, it doesn't look like a happy log, but as you say I'm not sure it's related or how to go about fixing it. There is a question with similar symptoms (askubuntu.com/questions/223501/…) but it's Ubuntu, not Lubuntu, so not sure if any of the suggested answers apply. Not sure what things you could try sorry, hopefully someone else can suggest something!

comment Intel NUC No Sound over hdmi
Have you tried running alsamixer, to see if the HDMI audio device is active? I normally install and run pavucontrol to use Pulse Audio for configuration, not sure if that's what you did?

comment Lubuntu : session won't open : where to find the logs
So you can get to a terminal okay? Can you check /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if there is anything that looks like an error?

comment Radeon r7 reported as hd 8600 “oland” on Ubuntu 12.04 with AMD proprietory driver
Hmm, it worked for me, but it was a while ago. Each version of the drivers may need a unique magic number, so you may need to search with the driver version number?
