I switched from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to Ubuntu 19.04, and accidentally removed HWE packages related to X.Org Server left from 18.04.

After that I'm getting stuck on the login screen. That is, after I click my user account and enter my password, I am being returned back to login screen.

I already installed back those packages, reinstalled & reconfigured xserver-xorg, installed old NVIDIA drivers. Nothing helped.

Manual startx returns no errors

Any suggestions?

UPD. Reinstalled system. Everything works now. Thanks for your help!
