My good old B560 ran all Xubuntu versions until 18.04 when the screen flickered a lot but still ran. After 19.04 installation, every attempt to run it ended with black screen. Re-installing 18.04 then produced same result. Have now read excellent stuff about nomodeset, nvidia, etc and am trying solutions suggested....but is there a permanent fix or will I have to do the fix every time I boot ?

  • nomodeset isn't a fix, it's a temporary workaround. – GabrielaGarcia May 11 at 16:45
  • Well thanks, but I still have the problem. What's the permanent solution ? – Paul May 13 at 11:00
  • You should have kept 18.04. – GabrielaGarcia May 13 at 11:01
