|0006827||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2020-11-07 00:49||2020-12-01 10:50|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006827: kali-defaults* 2020.4.6 has set X11 as the default display manager|
|Description||I just got the kali-defaults and kali-defaults-desktop upgrade from 2020.4.5 > 2020.4.6 and lost my second screen (HDMI) after the reboot.|
xrandr is not detecting output save from the built-in monitor, and windowing system shows X11 as opposed to GNOME in Settings>About
gdm3 is still the default display manager in /etc/X11/default-display-manager, it's also selected on the login screen, but it falls back to X11 immediately after login.
Second graphics card is an NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti (no drivers installed)
|Steps To Reproduce||Upgrade kali-defaults and kali-defaults-desktop to 2020.4.6 and reboot with a second monitor connected via HDMI|
Update: this is not a bug; Wayland is now disabled on startup (trouble with NVIDIA drivers, of course)
If you still need Wayland, here's how to get it back:
# If you want to try out wayland, you have to disable that systemd
# snippet and restart gdm:
# mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/gdm.service.d
# ln -sf /dev/null /etc/systemd/system/gdm.service.d/disable-wayland.conf
# rm -f /run/gdm3/custom.conf
# systemctl daemon-reload
# systemctl restart gdm
Many thanks to Hertzog for the detailed documentation!
This little thingy has broken my kali whatsoever. Only console.
Disabling that systemd snippet fixed the issue. LOL.
