Stuck at "Started GNOME Display Manager" Line

I just installed Ubuntu 19.04 on my desktop PC.

The installation went fine but, when I boot up, the booting process gets
stuck at a line that reads "Started GNOME Display Manager".

Anybody knows what is causing this? Is there an easy way to fix this issue?

I am not the most experienced Linux user...

Thanks.

What are the specs on this desktop? Particularly ram and graphics.

Presumably the 19.04 booted the live ok before you did the install with
it. Unfortunately the default live Ub 19.04 doesn't have inxi in the
limited repos active by default to make it easier to boot the live and
then use inxi to show the cpu, ram, and graphics situation.

When I boot a live Ub 19.04 I activate the universe and multiverse repos
so that I can 'immediately' install synaptic and inxi. One can do that
w/ the software & updates tool or w/ the command line.

The other advantage of booting into the live on the machine w/ the
problem is that you can use it to communicate w/ the machine in question
in this group. That way you are in a graphical environment while using
the machine which is having a problem

This is being posted from a live Ub 19.04 I just booted. inxi tells me
my ram and cpu and inxi -G tells me my gfx. You can also see the ram &
cpu in the settings/ details/ about.

$ inxi -G
Graphics:
Device-1: AMD RS880 [Radeon HD 4200] driver: radeon v: kernel

Yes Mike ,Many users don't know of inxi it being a cmd line app. I found
it here on this NG ,following you mentioned it.
It is an excellent hardware detector and I use it when there is a
suspected hardware hiccup.

From time to time this NG is still very useful.

It might be possible for the OP to work w/ his failed installed DE boot
from a command line environment, but I like to have a graphical
environment so I can choose whether I want to do something graphically
or command.

I'm not trying to insert myself between you and Dan but I
don't understand your comment. I have used nothing else
since I started using Linux over 12 years ago and no problems
whatsoever. That includs my desktops, my wife, son and my 2
grandkids. I've lost count how many boxes there were. True
I have heard complaints about Nvidia but also complaints about
ATI, AMD, Asus and Gigabyte. Nothing is 100% perfect.
Comments?

I tried to do it w/ a live Mja Gnome 18.04 w/ my oldish AMD onboard
Radeon HT 4200, but I was unsuccessful.

In fact, sometimes w/ that distro I have to 'monkey w/' the boot
parameters to get it to successfully boot live. Of course the live
doesn't have the sessions greeting options, and if I log out and log
back in, there is no option for wayland, just gnome or gnome classic.

I set up GDM which uses Wayland and then log in Gnome/Wayland.
I installed Manjaro/KDE in 2014, since then didn't install anything else.
Recently I switched from Intel/Nvidia to AMD/AMD and now I can feel full
power of Linux.

The live has gdm installed by default. There is a /etc/gdm/custom.conf
file which has an uncommented line

WaylandEnable=false

I read one place to change that to =true, but that didn't work. I
haven't experimented w/ just commenting it. The/My experiment would be
to change the line and log out and back in.

I tho't that Wayland still had a lot of missing 'pieces' - incomplete

Hmmm. I wonder why it didn't report the driver instead of N/A.

I see your Deb is on 4.9.0-8 kernel, so maybe that is an upgraded Deb 8.

Did you boot a live Ub 19.04 to get the install? Let's see what we can
get w/ that.

I'm not sure how to install and run inxi from within the live DVD.

* Ubuntu Software does not find it.
* $ sudo apt install inxi (run from Terminal window within the live DVD)
tells me "Unable to locate package inxi"

You add the repo/s, update, then install.

If you like to do add the repo/s graphically, use 'software & updates'.
The default just enables main and restricted; I enable universe and
multiverse; I can't remember which one has inxi. Then the
software/updates will want to update when you close it.

Then you can install inxi in the manner you described.

The way you could do it - install the repos - from the command is:

sudo add-apt-repository universe

likewise multiverse.

The driver must have been automatically downloaded when I installed
Ubuntu. At a certain point the Ubuntu installer asks if it should
download proprietary drivers and I think that's when the NVIDIA driver
was downloaded.

inxi is in universe.  So is synaptic.  A lot of other Ub flavors have
universe enabled in the live default.

Looks like the ol' no nVidia driver for Wayland issue.

I enable universe and multiverse; I can't remember which one has inxi.

Almost sounds like a wayland issue.

Why a different driver than that for xorg anyway? The same code
in a different framework or wha Of course I have been installing
the Nvidia driver and blacklisting the nuevauae <sic> module for
quite some time now, and my 3-D stuff chugs right along at full
speed. I do not run a desktop under wayland (obviously) so I have
never encountered the issue.

But I know the nvidia proprietary yada yada yada...

The problem is new releases are moving away from X and towards Wayland
for default display manager and nVidia was not cooperating with their
code so there is no support for their driver in Wayland. Since the
nVidia driver is way-better than the nouveau drivers this is a problem.
Common solution is revert back to X where you can use the nVidia driver
with compiz and get back the advantage of your GPU. There is rumor of
some progress on the nVidia-Wayland issue and maybe we'll get a driver soon.

I just installed Ubuntu 19.04 on my desktop PC.
The installation went fine but, when I boot up, the booting process gets
stuck at a line that reads "Started GNOME Display Manager".
Anybody knows what is causing this? Is there an easy way to fix this issue?
I am not the most experienced Linux user...
Thanks.
I don't know if Ubuntu 19.04 has Wayland, but I had a similar problem
with Ubuntu 18.10 due to Wayland.

This fixed it for me :
