After a difficult update to 18.04 my system is booting into a tty and not into the gnome shell. I found that lightdm was still installed and wanted to start. I deinstalled lightdm and when I do "sudo systemctl start gdm", gnome starts and all is ok. How can I correct this so that my system start normally? Do I need a target for SystemD?

  • To which tty (1-6) does the system boot? From which version and how did you upgrade the system (and what was difficult)? – danzel May 21 '18 at 7:20

I did "sudo apt install --reinstall gdm" and it was fixed.

  • Ran into exactly this problem, reinstalling seems to have fixed the issue. Thanks! – Gargravarr Oct 1 '18 at 13:04
