I have dual booted Ubuntu 17.04 with Windows 10. On installing Nvidia 375.82 drivers manually, the computer goes into an Infinite Login Loop. Note: I have tried everything 1. chown root:root. Xauthority 2. purge the manually installex drivers and reinstall new ones 3. Reinstall Ubuntu and install the drivers.
The Installation of drivers was done after
sudo service lightdm stop
One thing that I noticed was, after
service lightdm start the loop started and
dpkg-configure lightdm didn't give any output to select lightdm which was strange. Another thing was, the guest session login disappeared after installing nvidia drivers.
Nothing seems to work. Please help me out
