[CLOSED] ArcoLinux problems with xfce - not able to login

Post by Irish Dream » Sun May 27, 2018 12:57 pm

Hello,

Yesterday I installed ArcoLinux on an HP Z400 workstation. Standard should be to use Xfce. After the first login in Xfce the due updates are done as well as the "7 Steps Installation Guide". However, after rebooting and logging in to Xfce does not load Xfce but I always return to lightdm only. After a restart only Openbox and i3 works.

Waiting for a little help

You have an Nividia card.

Check with lspci in terminal

If so

sudo pacman -R xf86-video-nouveau and reboot.

Thanks Erik for addressing this issue.

I was just about to post a question about this same issue as two of my systems were locked up and had exactly the same problem, after doing the procedure the systems are booting like they were before. But I noticed a few things that didn't seem quite right to me, I will make a post about this after I finish some work I have to do.
