This morning Cinnamon won't start and keeps crashing.
It is the dialog that says it crashed and if I would like to restart; click yes and it crashes again.
Cinnamon crashed after nvidia drivers installation Discusses installing ppa:bumblebee/stable but the post is quite old now, is this still relevant?
Below is the output from
lshw -C video as root

This guy suggested removing the .cinnamon folder from the user directory.
I have to admit, I am reasonably comfortable in the Linux server world, but quite new to Linux desktop GUIs.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should start to debug this? I would rather not have to reinstall the whole OS to fix this!
