The following steps reproduce the problem:
- Install Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
sudo apt-get install xpra
- Login screen hangs (no response from keyboard and mouse, no cursor at all)
At first, I didn't know it was
xpra. After some trial and error, I narrowed down to it because once
xpra is installed, as long as I don't log out or reboot, there seems no problem. Once I reboot, I cannot type my password in the login screen, nor can I show the terminal via shortcuts. I tried reinstalling
ubuntu-desktop but in vain.
How can I fix this, using
xpra or alternative without such problem?
