Hello. My situation was very complicated, and none of the fixes I found
would work. I am running a Nvidia GTX970 with an Intel CPU and using a
dual monitor setup. Ubuntu 17.04 was working very well. Later upgrading
to Ubuntu 17.10, the Nvidia graphics became an issue because of Wayland,
but I followed this guide and was able to set it working for 17.10,
ubuntu-17-10/ . For 18.04, nothing I found online was working. I was
able to setup Openbox and use that to investigate the matter. I
suspected it was some sort of opengl problem since all applications
requiring it would fail to run and cheking with the terminal, it would
say that the libGLU1.1.so was not found, or one of those opengl
libraries. Upon further investigating, it turned out that the xorg that
comes stock with 18.04 does not have the latest Mesa patch that supports
nvidia graphics cards. So I ended up getting the padoka ppa in order to
get the latest xorg and mesa. Upon doing so, everything is working fine.
I thought this fix was a little unorthodox being that I believed that
Padoka was for Nouvou and AMD cards but, apparently it fixed the issue
with the proprietary 396 drivers. I had the same issue with the 384, and
390. So I am not sure if this fix only pertains to the Nvidia 396
drivers, but I believe the problem stems from an Xorg that does not have
the latest Mesa.

Bug description:
  I'm using Bionic with the new 4.15 kernel. I've been using the
  nvidia-384 driver with no problem for a while.  Today I issued "sudo
  apt-get upgrade" and I was prompted to upgrade the nvidia driver to
  the nvidia-390.  After installing the driver and rebooting, I was only
  able to boot in to the tty terminal.  The graphical display failed to
  boot.  I have had similar problems with nvidia driver version 390 with
  Arch Linux and with Open Suse Tumbleweed.
