Ubuntu: Stuck in Login-loop after installing drivers for GTX 1060


After I solved this problem, I was able to go to the login screen. My problem now is that I am stuck in a login-loop...

Details about what led to the login-loop problem:

  • bought a Nvidia GTX 1060
  • installed the gpu with driver nvidia-381 on Ubuntu 16.04


  • I can access the TTY while I'm in the login screen
  • The login-loop: I can login perfectly but after about 5-10 seconds or so, I get thrown back to the login screen
  • Most of the time this problem is solved, when you uninstall the nvidia drivers but I can't uninstall the them because without it I get my first problem again and with that blackscreens or the low-resulution mode
  • Secure boot is already disabled
  • Till now I haven't blacklisted nouveau, but I will try that

I also looked at this post and some of the links there
