I'm trying to get cinnamon working with a nvidia GTX960M in my laptop. I tried with 3 drivers and does not work. But maybe im installing something wrong because i have not many experience with graphic card drivers on linux.
I test with nouveau and system crashes. It show up kernel errors like cpu stall for some second i cant install or uninstall anything. After booting with nomodeset option i intalled nvidia-driver from repository so i can login (lightdm) but show up a message cinnamon has crashed and ask me if i want to reboot, but crashes again and again.
I read about some nvidia driver error maybe is fixed on latest update so i installed driver from nvidia website. No error shown during installation but the same happends.
I uninstall nvidia website driver and reinstall nvidia driver from debian repository. It crashes...
after crashing i open a console (alt+f2) and run glxinfo:
error unable to open display.
and cinnamon --replace:
Unable to init server
Window manager error: Unable to open display
