I’ve been using Ubuntu Budgie 19.04 without issues for the past months, and I just upgraded to 19.10 with:
sudo do-release-upgrade -d
After reboot I could no longer login to the desktop with Budgie selected. After entering password, the screen goes blank with a cursor on it for a few seconds, then completely black and shortly after, back to the login screen.
The standard Ubuntu/gnome desktop, as well as Ubuntu on Wayland work normally.
The laptop is on Intel graphics, no other video cards/drivers exist.
sudo lspci -k | grep -EA3 ‘VGA|3D|Display’
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
Subsystem: Lenovo Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller
Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915
Permission of .Xauthority and /tmp seems file (.ICEauthority doesn’t exist for some reason):
foxium@lenovo:~ ls -lA .Xauthority -rw------- 1 foxium foxium 57 Oct 9 14:26 .Xauthority foxium@lenovo:~ ls -ld /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 22 root root 12288 Oct 9 14:31 /tmp
I tried uninstalling “everything” to start from scratch:
sudo apt purge ubuntu-budgie-desktop budgie*
Restarted to make sure Budgie is gone, then from console:
sudo apt install ubuntu-budgie-desktop
Restarted again after making sure lightdm is selected as the default display manager, however the login loop persists.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks for your help!
