I just installed this Xubuntu, and everytime I login to my account it just shows the desktop, just the wallpaper and mouse, and stays frozen. All I can use is Firefox.

When I signed into xfce with the open source driver it did however it would work.

How do I make it work with my nvidia driver? I had no problems on Linux Mint or Debian. I've tried many guides. I couldn't use the 19 version of Xubuntu, I had to use the 18 versions one. I currently have a nitro 5, i5 8300k, gtx 1050. Is it possible I can resort back to the open source driver? Or to make the gtx 1050 driver work?

  • Most likely you need to disable Secure Boot in BIOS. – Pilot6 Sep 15 at 12:32
