Ubuntu 18.04 stuck at Ubuntu logo, disabling wayland doesn't help


Can't get past Ubuntu logo on bootup.

This happened after installing a Ubuntu repository softwarre that controls brightness.

Tried the solutions offered for disabling wayland display by dropping into shell after bios, but that doesn't work.

Here is what I *can* do:

1) Start the computer and boot with Ubuntu usb and access folders and files on stricken machine.

2) I can boot boot into recovery mode and see all my data, folders, desktop, etc. but they are distorted.

NOTE: in the software center I attempt to remove Brightness Control (Xrandr)extensions.gnome.org but the "uninstall" button does not work. I believe this may be the culprit but how do I uninstall a belligerence piece of software?


Now what? Please.

try it from a terminal:
Code:
sudo apt purge belligerent-software
and show us the output you get.

I was able to boot into recovery mode and remove the brightness controller and things are now back to normal.

Thanks.
