    GNOME 3.10 isn't working with nvidia driversI


    I installed arch linux on my laptop today And installed a proprietary driver for my gtx 660 graphics card. When I enabled gdm and rebooted, gdm didn't show up and I had to ctl, alt, and f2 to get into bash, I tried lxde and xfce, they both work with the driver, but gnome doesn't. What should I do??

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Since xfce and such work, then Xorg is running and the nvidia driver must also work. What about KDE? Have you tried that?

    No, but I think it would also probably work

    You might try re-installing gnome then, or revert it one release cycle / version.
