Public bug reported:
Kubuntu 17.10 amd64
After recent system updates on reboot I get a black screen after the
login screen, no desktop.
Various attempts to start plasma desktop/kde failed with messages such as:
ksmserver closed unexpectedly
display is not set or cannot connect to the x server
The following packages had been updated to v 17.2.8:
I reinstalled the previous version of these drivers and everything was
back to normal.
I read elsewhere someone reporting a similar problem but that it had
gone away after recent updates. So I reapplied the above system updates
and again had no desktop after rebooting.
I again reverted to the previous versions (17.2.2) and the desktop is
now working again.
My graphics card is AMD/ATI Radeon
