Loki - Black screen for 10-15 minutes after login
I've installed Loki on a new machine running dual monitors. I have an Nvidia NVS310 card, I'm using 340.96 Nvidia proprietary drivers. When I login in the morning after locking the machine the night before I login successfully but then my screen is black, I get a mouse cursor but I can't move the mouse cursor. If I leave it alone, 10-15 minutes later both screens come up normally and the machine functions fine the rest of the day.

I can SSH into the machine from another machine. I can't VNC in from another machine eventhough the servce is running. The CTRL + ALT +Fx keys don't do anything. I've gone through the DMESG file and the /var/log/Xorg.0.log and nothing seems out of place. (I can attach those if anything thinks that would help.)

The only thing I can think to try next is changing the Nvidia driver. Alternatively I'm going looking for other log files pertaining to Nvidia or graphics in general.

Any help is appreciated.

Why such an old driver? 367.44 is for you.

361 was the newest driver that was available to me and that gave me the same issues

Update: After I switched through several nvidia drivers now I cannot log in. I'm in the same situation I was in before ( ) but apparently sudo nvidia-uninstall doesn't do anything now.

Also, when I tried to install the 367 driver from the website that's what caused my first black screen at logout.

After several attempts of completely wiping the suite of pre-installed Nvidia drivers and attempting to install new ones off the website I cut my losses and reinstalled. After I reinstalled I did not attempt to update to any Nvidia drivers this install. I'm just using the default nouveau drivers and haven't had any graphical issues.

Nouveau is pretty good nowadays. Getting proprietary drivers to work may require a little manual work if you do not use distro tools.
