I'm on the latest 14.04 with nvidia-331 drivers installed. Everything runs smoothly just when I try to switch user I get a black screen. Suspend and logout works with no problems.

Somehow I managed to make it work ones but after restart it was broken again and I'm not able to repeat the steps I made.

Seems it's an nvidia driver or lightdm problem since I can still connect by ssh even with black screen.

Any idea?

    I have i915 driver and I have the same problem. My workaround is to press Ctrl+Alt+Fn, 7<= n <=12, where n is a number decoding users that logged in after last reboot. For the case of only one user it will be Ctrl+Alt+F7. – user244413 Feb 18 '16 at 13:04
