Re: 14.04 Can't Type Login
On an eMachines®/Acer® EL1210-09 with both a 600W Shuttle® PSU retrofit and an EVGA® GeForce® 8400 GS™ half-height video display adapter, the Login screen on UbuntuGNOME® 14.01a2 and 14.02b1 has occasionally failed to appear despite X starting during boot. It appears that having two or more graphics processing units (I have both the planar GeForce® in the nVIDIA® MCP78S chipset plus an nVIDIA® GT218 Rev. 2) is a factor - I actually had to bounce between both GPU's with monitors to get a login screen. Additionally, the two-GPU problem may be exacerbating known issues with both GNOME® Shell and GNOME® Settings Daemon. How does one work arund these issues when one is unable to disable the planar GPU?
