How to disable Wayland and enable Xorg display server on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux - LinuxConfig.org


#1

The default Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver installation comes with Wayland enabled. The objective is to disable Wayland and enable Xorg display server instead.

Does not work. After trying to launch Teamviewer GUI it just aborts and nothing ever happens. Maybe I have another problem, cause Teamviewer from Nix sources also does not work.

This caused me the following problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm3/+bug/1770238 Screen would go blank after logging in and eventually would get returned to login. Re-enabling wayland fixed it.

Thanks. Seems my system with D525MW motherboard needs this to unfreeze the login screen.
