I mistakenly removed all of my NVidia drivers in my Deepin 15.6. Actually, I was trying to fix my drivers but this happened. After which, I restarted my laptop, but I'm unable to boot into the desktop environment. The screen shows only the Deepin logo after filling up and then nothing works.

Also, Ctrl + Alt + F1 does nothing, i.e. terminal is also not opening up. I used this command, for removal of drivers :

$ sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

I am able to open both the recovery modes, one which is grub and one which is inside advanced options, But, nothing helpful seems to be there.

How can I solve this issue, as all my data is there in linux and it is very well setup with all my required packages?

  • In recovery mode if you can get to a command prompt with networking you can simply install via apt-get. If you need to google, etc. then use a text based browser like lynx,links,links2, or elinks. If you need to copy/paste, install and use gpm. – ivanivan Jul 15 '18 at 14:58
  • @gpm Thanks. But, the problem is fixed. – darkcodernavv Jul 15 '18 at 17:08

Booted into single mode by using this method -

  1. Goto ‘advanced options’ for Deepin.
  2. Press ‘e’ on the first kernel entry.
  3. Find the line ending with ‘ro quiet splash’ and add ‘single’ after that with a space.
  4. Press F10 or Ctrl + X to boot into single mode.
  5. Install / Open Deepin Graphics Driver Manager and Select NVidia in that.
  6. Reboot and again boot back to single mode.
  7. Follow on-screen instructions to successfully install the drivers.
  8. Now, you’ll be able to boot normally to your Deepin desktop.

But, Now installed Ubuntu 18.04, deleting Deepin after taking all the needed stuff.
