Login loop after upgrading to Ubuntu 23.04

vg flag

I upgraded from the LTS version to 22.10 which was fine and all, but after I upgraded to 23.04 my laptop got stuck in a login loop after logging in. Things I tried:

  • I tried to find the xauthority, which wasn't there
  • The permissions of the tmp folder were okay
  • I still have enough space in my home folder, around 70% is taken
  • I tried creating a test user to login which also got stuck in a login loop
  • I tried logging in through cinnamon and a view others through the settings button in the bottom right which loaded even slower

My laptop has a dual boot with windows and the model is Lenovo ThinkPad P15v Gen 2

UPDATE: I installed nvidia-smi for driver version 525 and I installed the nvidia driver version 525 and just now I was able to login again. After I login though the screen goes black for a moment, this also happens when suspending, like whenever logging in and logging out happens.

Does your user account use a nonstandard shell like _zsh_ that might not be installed, or not listed in `/etc/shells`?

@HuHa No I don't, I did switch my standard terminal to the new gnome console, but I don't think that's what you mean by shell

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
