Bug description:
  I don't what changed but today, my Artful laptop refuses to start a
  graphical session. The last update seems entirely unrelated:

  # /var/log/apt/history.log
  Start-Date: 2018-03-06  15:50:35
  Commandline: apt-get dist-upgrade
  Requested-By: simon (1000)
  Upgrade: libpq5:amd64 (9.6.7-0ubuntu0.17.10, 9.6.8-0ubuntu0.17.10)
  End-Date: 2018-03-06  15:50:39

  I tried linux-image-4.13.0-32-generic and linux-
  image-4.13.0-36-generic to no avail. I removed the "quiet splash" args
  from /etc/default/grub but it didn't help. Using "nomodeset" makes the
  graphical session almost work but the brightness of the screen is so
  low that I cannot use it and can't make it brighter either.
