Is there any more log I can provide that could shed a light on this? This bug is very easily reproducible on my computer, so I should be able to provide relevant logs!
My computer is not a fresh install and has been upgraded every step of the way since 14.10. I'll try a LiveUSB of 16.10 to see if the problem persists. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to lightdm in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1634412 Title: Unity8 session fails to start due to unity-system-compositor Status in Light Display Manager: New Status in Unity System Compositor: New Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu: New Bug description: Hi, I've upgraded to 16.10 to try out the latest and the greatest. Unfortunately, the Unity8 session does not work anymore. It was working as expected on 16.04 with the overlay PPA. When I select "Unity8" in lightdm and enter my password, the password box disappears, and nothing else happens. I can still access all the indicators, so lightdm is not completely frozen. I then have to reboot or restart lightdm in tty1 to log in Unity 7. I do have a "system problem detected" warning and I did send the report, but I can't find it on Launchpad, that's why I'm filing this bug manually. I'm using Ubuntu 16.10 64bits, with the opensource radeon driver. Further info from the automatic bug report: Title : unity-system-compositor crashed with SIGABRT in __gnu_cxx::__verbose_terminate_handler() I'm attaching some logs that might be useful. Thanks!
