Cannot login into Gnome after Nvidia/Bumblebee installation

Postby Gambero » 2018-04-13 15:25

Hi guys ,
After a Nvidia/ Bumblebee installation Gnome gets stucked at the login screen.
After I enter the password kicks back to login screen.
The only one I'm able to login with is Weyland
Any Idea?
Thanks
Gambero

Not much to go on. You didn't mention debian version, or what display manager you are using, I imagine it is gdm3? You didn't say whether you checked to see if it creates a log file, or if you checked any other log files.

Try this?

found with a search for gdm3+log 6th result on page.

I have had a similar issue to this when a HDD partition filled up without me realising it, the solution in that case was to simply create some free space. You could test this by opening another tty and login to console (do not try to log in with gui) and type df and check the hdd space, anything with a value over 90% would need checking.

Of course it might have nothing to do with your issue but it is worth checking and would only take a few minutes.

Hi, thanks for your help.
System is:
4.9.0-6-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.82-1+deb9u3 (2018-03-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 64-bit
Running Gnome 3.22.2 gdm3
Don't have any /var/log/message
Strangely I can only login with Wayland and nothing else.
Thanks
Gambero

Thanks for your answer however I do not have this problem as it is a new installation

Bumblebee (Optimus) support is fairly weak in Linux. It's a joke.
With that said, here is a relevant Debian wiki page:
