I’m trying to switch from lightdm to gdm but have some trouble doing so. Gdm won’t start. When I disable lightdm and enable gdm, gdm gets stuck in an infinite reset loop. It tries to start, crashes and resets over and over again until I somehow manage to switch to a TTY and quickly run commands to enable lightdm again before next iteration of the gdm reset, witch flickers the screen and throws me out of the TTY.
I’m pretty sure it has to do something with me using nvidia drivers which I have to do since I’m running a GTX 1060 and the noveau driver is a mess that not only messes up performance but has my GPU fans spinning full blast 100% of the time. So anyone suggesting that I can already politely say that it’s out of the question so don’t bother. I want to be able to rum gdm with nvidia drivers, which I can do just fine on Ubuntu 17.10 by the way so I know it should be possible.
Anyone who can help me out with something to try?
