Wayfire Greeter Daemon Failing

Hey all,

I attempted to boot into Wayfire from a USB stick (trying to install), and I selected the proprietary NVIDIA option. It runs through the jobs just fine, but when the Plymouth Boot Screen gets terminated, it goes black and I get a message saying "FAILED Greeter Daemon Failed to Start"

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? I have already scoured the web, use two separate downloaded images (checked the SHA256 as well on both), used a few different tools to write to USB, and I'm getting the same result. One thing I haven't tried is using open source selection. I have an NVIDIA GPU with no integrated graphics available. I can't get the inxi as I can't even get into the system. :frowning:

Any help?

Do it,

search in forum too.


Wayfire is pure Wayland, so basically proprietary Nvidia will not work period.
