Running Ubuntu LTS 18:04 with nvidia, was working fine.
Recently did an apt-get upgrade, and now am no longer able to log in to my desktop. Lightdm starts fine, with both monitors supported, but when I log in, after about a minute I get booted back to the login.
I use Gnome legacy.
Previously, all I had to do was reinstall the nvidia drivers, but this no longer works.
I have tried purging, and using both the distro nvidia drivers and .run.
The only errors I can see in the log are a bunch of:
Activated service 'org.freedesktop.systemd1' failed: Process org.freedestop.systemd1 exited with status 1
But I'm not sure what that means, if anything.
What recent changes could have broken this? Like i said, everything worked fine until I did an apt-get upgrade yesterday.
I have now tried a fresh reinstall with an empty home directory and it still fails with a dbus error.
It looks like there was a recent change introduced which breaks dbus/gnome-fallback/something.
Any thoughts? This is a bit of a showstopper
Ok, after a LOT of playing around, i've managed to isolate the problem. Basically, it seems that something changed in dbus/systemd/x or whatever, in the last few days, which means that you can NO LONGER log in with an NIS based user.
I fudged it, by creating a dummy copy entry of my users in /etc/passwd from the server. This lets me log in at least.
Obviously this is not a sustainable solution....
