Just upgraded to 18.04 hours ago. I did work with it for 2-3 hours, even with some issues that could be looked at later.
I shut-down and went for a bite. When back I re-booted; then I got the UM logo and the dots. Then I get a grey screen with the little cursor on the top left, then black screen and the mouse arrow appears for a sec. Then black and back to the the little cursor on the top left then the mouse arrow, again. I let it do that for about 5 minutes. non-stop. I can’t get to the log-in screen.
Seems to search for something missing. If you know or have a solution, please tell me - this way I won’t have the whole night trying to wake it up…
Full access to the drive data if booting from a flashdrive. So problem is really to repair the log-in; but how ?
LIghtDM issue ? If so, don<t know how to solve it.
After stobburn persistence I was finally able to pass through the log-in, using TTY (Ctlr-alt-F1) and typing StartX. Now I am on 18.04… but no menu, no pannel, no nothing except fanthom desktop icons. I was able to activate Thunderbird (no top menu) and clicked a link to activate Firefox and lead me here. Unless you know how to revive the rest, I’ll try reboot
Ctrl+Alt+T: nothing. no terminal
If I need to re-install something; how can I do it with no menu, no panel, no terminal ?
How to reinstall desktop in that context ?
