When I install nvidia drivers after second reboot my screen is black on SDDM (login manager).

Tried to add:

xrandr --setprovideroutputsource modesetting NVIDIA-0
xrandr --auto

to file: /usr/share/sddm/scripts/Xsetup from here

  • Nvidia v384
  • GeForce GT 525M

After 20 hours of headache, I found the only solution for myself: replace default SDDM to LightDM.

On black screen:

  1. Ctrl+Alt+F1
  2. Login
  3. sudo apt install slick-greeter lightdm lightdm-settings apparmor
  4. Select LightDM
  5. sudo reboot now
