Cinnamon Crashes after Replacing Video Card

By | January 21, 2016


After removing an AMD graphics card (to use onboard integrated graphics), Cinnamon crashes repeatedly after logging in.


Cinnamon may still be referencing the old video drivers.


Uninstall the proprietary AMD graphic card drivers.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. List installed AMD packages -> dpkg -l *fglrx*
  2. Remove the installed AMD packages and drivers with sudo apt-get purge. For example, sudo apt-get purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-core
