I just upgraded to Ubuntu 16.10 and after the restart the display light flickers constantly, regardless of the application running. The flickering starts when the login screen is shown. I am using a Lenovo Thinkpad E540.
I have NVIDIA GeForce GT740M with the driver
X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver from xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
Other driver options, which I'm not eager to try (since last time the entire graphics display stopped working):
NVIDIA binary driver 367.57 (proprietary, tested) NVIDIA binary driver 340.98 (proprietary)
Output of lspic:
lspci | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
My current kernel version is
uname -r 4.8.0-26-generic
I have tried this solution here but it didn't work.
Has anyone a workaround for this very annoying issue?
