Looking for a workaround for Neon Live nomodeset stuck into an infinite loop

Thanks, you saved my day!

Just in case anyone else ends up in my same situation with Neon Live in safe graphics mode stuck in an infinite loop:

On the boot selection grub:

Pick “KDE neon (safe graphics)” and press E key to edit the selection.

On the line: “linux /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper apparmor=0 quiet splash nomodeset ---” add " 3" just after “nomodeset” so it will became: “linux /casper/vmlinuz boot=casper apparmor=0 quiet splash nomodeset 3 ---”.

Then press F10 to boot.

When the login prompt appears log as “neon” and an empty password (just enter).

Then on the command line run:


At this point the Neon Live should be back on rails and finally load the desktop.
