LightDM not starting at boot

Advice: write down everything your doing with the system, and always make a backup!

Good Luck!

Cheers @vits95 - I do use Timeshift but do not have a backup where the display manager works hence my reinstall. I also take a block level backup of my entire disk once everything is configured using CloneZilla

:flying_saucer: But much better is to take a backup stright before everything is configured ( :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: )!

The reason for this error seemed to be some kind of conflict with X11 and the Nvidia drivers. While on boot time I got the error that the Nvidia Kernel module could not be loaded, I still was able to start lightdm once I was in TTY1 PayGOnline

With the nouveau driver it’s works (at least for me, see above).

nvidia. Your guess may be true. What output of

lsmod | grep -E '(^nvidia|^nouveau)'

after your’ve had started lightdm from tty1?

I did a complete reinstall with KDE desktop environment and managed to install LightDM without any problems (whilst still using the NVIDIA drivers)
