My current setup which has worked for a while now is to run a Win 10 laptop with an Intel 530 GPU. On this I installed VMWare workstation player v12 and ran an Ubuntu 18.04 installation.
Two weeks ago there was a Win 10 update and since then the graphics on the Ubuntu installation no longer seem to work. The VM boots and the initial graphics loads with a very faint Ubuntu splash screen then stops, not allowing me to login to the desktop.
I've upgraded the VMWare player to v15.
I've looked at various threads on this site and others and I've done the following:
run apt install haveged
run systemctl enable haveged
run apt update
run apd upgrade
run apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel # run to make sure I've got the latest intel drivers (which it said I already did).
Made sure all of the xorg packages are up-to-date (which the system said they were).
I've logged in through the grub advanced menu to the default graphics and I get a message saying screen, graphics card and input device settings could not be detected correctly.
None of the above have worked. Even if I just try to run a firefox session from the command line I get Unable to init server: Broadway display type not supported.
Does anyone else have any ideas that I could try? I'd hate to lose this guest OS as it's my go to for a secure desktop to do banking etc and has a lot of stored information.
