Ubuntu: Freezing when selecting GNOME on Xorg



Question:

I need to use X11 instead of wayland for Zoom.

When I select "GNOME on Xorg" my laptop freezes right after I click login. I have tried selecting "Ubuntu on Xorg" and have the same result.

I can only login to the default "GNOME".

Once I login to GNOME I can lock, log in as another user, select "GNOME on Xorg", unlock and I can get back to the desktop without it freezing. BUT echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE returns wayland and not X11.

I'm running Ubuntu 17.10 on a new dell XPS 15.
GNOME 3.26.2
i7-7700HQ
Intel HD Graphics 630 / Nvidia GTX 1050
16 GB RAM
64 bit
