LXDE does not start any more

Postby lucalm » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:09 am


I have a wandboard quad running Ubuntu 14.04 armhf (operating system official).
For some reason after I made a upgrade (apt-get dist-upgrade) the lxde does not start automatically anymore.
What I should do in order to fix this issue?

Thanks in advanced.

Refrain from dist-upgrade, it will break your user interface.

The reason is that in order to enable the GPU acceleration one has to carefully install the right versions of Xorg and Xorg modules.
Since the Vivante modules are not in Canonical repositories, a dist-upgrade will only change X server version - which likely is ABI incompatible with the accelerated Xorg modules.
