Got a new PC with a GTX 1080 TI and an i7-8700K Intel core. I installed ubuntu and after specifying nomodeset everything worked. So far so good. Next, I wanted to install the driver for my graphics card but no matter what I do, when I reboot I get stuck at the login screen.
- I tried deleting .Xauthority but it doesn't change anything.
.xsession-erros tells me
openConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 gnome-session (Unity) main process (2235) terminated with status 1
- Also tried different ubuntu version (16.04 and 17) as well as different drivers (the proprietary and the open source ones)
- Tried disabling nouveau
- Setting permissions on /tmp
- Updating all packages
- Using gdm instead of lightdm
Maybe the problem is that I have the onboard graphics card and the NVIDIA card?
