However maybe the make.log won't help. Because you appear to have a working kernel driver. I can also see this failure, which is important: Jun 17 21:09:53 little-black-box gnome-shell[1367]: Unable to initialize Clutter: Unable to initialize the Clutter backend: no available drivers found. Jun

There seems to be several places to look. I will have to continue later as I have run out of time for now. But maybe the attached file will help narrow down the location of any useful files related to dkms. ** Attachment added: "locate_i_dkms.txt"

Thanks. Comment #14 indeed shows you ran into a lot of trouble on 2018-06-15 and tried a lot of things to fix the nvidia drivers. The only thing is that the nvidia drivers have never changed at all since their release in April: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-390

Another thought is that there was a gdm3 update on 12 June that might have taken a couple of days to reach you. If that has caused the problem then it would be a good idea to try downloading and reinstalling the prior version's files from here:
