[SOLVED] ArcoLinux Plasma Install

Post by anvvsharma » Mon Apr 20, 2020 1:54 pm

HI,


I too am facing the same problem "Failed to Start Light display manager". Require a quick help in this regard trying from couple of days now.

i tried with ArcoLinux 20.4 arcolinux.20.4 iso and arcolinuxb.xfce.20.4 iso and run into above issue while booting.

I tried below things as per the posts / fixed
  • Update and followed by reboot
  • downgrade ldm and followed by reboot
  • removed lightdm entry in /etc/pacman.conf
all one by one to it is reflecting and nothing seems to work;

i did so many attempting in installing the software and nothing seems to work. Not sure what still is missing apart from what is mentioned the video s for this fix.

as far i remember i choose @ Installation screen --> Kernel

Trail - 1) Selected "All Options" checked ; When this failed
Trail - 2) Selected "Linux kernel without any nvidia" and " Linux-lts kernel without any nvidia" ; when this failed
Trail - 3) Selected "Linux kernel without any nvidia" and " Nvidia with Linux Kernel" & "Intel-ucode"; when this failed
Trail - 3) Selected "Nvidia-lts with Linux Kernel" and " Nvidia with Linux Kernel" ; when this failed
Trail - 2) Selected "Linux kernel without any nvidia" and " Linux-lts kernel without any nvidia" & Cuda toolkit; this also failed

not sure what is the best combination. I have Intel Xeon E3-1230 V2(8) & Nvidia GeForce GT 710

Also tried ArcoLinux 19.7 still run into the same issue.

Require a quick help in this regard trying from couple of days now.

Thanks in Advance

There is no quick help.

There is long pain staking time to figure out your hardware.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.

You should be fine with the nvidia package

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S nvidia nvidia-settings nvidia-utils
Install the system.
Reboot.
Then press
ctrl + alt + F2
login
and type above command
does it show any errors as a result


As a lost resort you can install the nidia driver - see arcolinux.com for tutorials on nvidia

Thanks a lot erik,

installation of Nvidia drivers worked for me.
  • i did a full installation of ArcoLinuxb-xfce-20.4
  • Selected Nvidia & Nvidia-lts during installation
  • Downloaded the drivers from site that you have provided
  • rebooted
  • i was able to login as usual without any issue of LDM
During the process i did not do any of the below ones.
  • run <update> command
  • run <downgrade ldm>
Thanks a lot once again erik, finally it work for me.
