This question had been asked multiple times but since they're almost older than two years, I will ask it again. The answers to those question couldn't help me either.
After logging in on my account I get a black screen. I don't even see my cursor. I did not change major settings and the problem occurred randomly. When I start a guest session, everything works fine.
I don't know if it's worth mentioning but when I take a screenshot, I see two desktops in the output. Like this. I don't have anything plugged in.
- The solution in this question doesn't work. The file in the mentioned directory doesn't exist.
- Multiple answers on this subject mention (NVIDIA) drivers. As far as I know, no drivers have been installed/updated by me nor did I edit settings related to graphics. My laptop isn't Dual-Boot either and I erased the entire disk and replaced Windows with Ubuntu (through the Ubuntu installation screen). So existing drivers where probably deleted.
My OS Type: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (regular), 64-bit
Hardware: Asus laptop R500V
Processor: Intel Core i5-3210M
CPU: 5GHz × 4
Graphics: Intel Ivy Bridge Mobile
Graphics Card: NVIDIA Corporation GF199m [GeForce 610M]
I hope I've given enough information and I hope you can help me.
