Yesterday, my xorg was working but it was using integrated graphics. I tried to get nvidia working. Now, when I run startx, I get a screen on tty3 which shows the output of the last tty I was in. For example, I hit ctrl+alt+f1, type startx and am moved to tty3 where I get a black screen with a solid cursor. If I go back to tty0 I can see the output of startx which shows no errors (besides minor gtk css warning) and a blinking cursor. When I go back to tty3, I see the same thing with a solid cursor.

Welcome to the Nvidia vs. Linux war!

1- First off purge all Nvidia drivers:

  • sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*

2- Next, reconfigure your xorg:

  • Make a copy and save it in a safe place >this file> /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If things go wrong you might need it later again:

sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.BACKUP

The next steps will reconfigure your xorg and install nouveau drivers(intel GPU)

sudo apt-get install nouveau-firmware

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Now to get Nvidia on your Linux system you need BumbleBee!

    I am using arch. I don't have apt. Do you know the equivalent commands? Is there really no way to use nvidia drivers? I have to use my integrated gpu? I have had success before with nvidia drivers.

    My bad I assumed you had Ubuntu. Try this and see pacman -Ss xf86-video Nov 15, 2016 at 15:07

  • Nvidia gave me a headache back in the day on Ubuntu. If you still want to use them check out bumblebee-project.org . The only way to get them running without errors. Nov 15, 2016 at 15:20
