Suddenly this happens:
When I boot my noteback linux mint boots to the login screen. Then after I logged in the mouse cursor is visible centered on a black background. And thats where nothing more happens.
I tried to use
startx but same problem there...stays black.
One thing. I removed
wpasupplicant package before this happened. I'm sure I saw some "cinnamon" removing while the removal processed. Might it be that my cinnamon - which is the GUI isn't it? - has been removed aswell?
I'd like to give you more debug log / informations - but I'm not familiar in doing so. I'm used to work in Terminal for coding but something need to get into GUI for browsing.
EDIT: When trying to switch cinnamon on the login screen (the lambda symbol) this error message appears
Xsession: unable to launch "gnome-session-cinnamon" Xsession…."gnome-session-cinnamon" not found: falling back to default session.
Might it be that there really is an issue with cinnamon after the removal of
EDIT2: I found a link describing that error message above: https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=156684
They tell to
sudo apt-get install --reinstall cinnamon. Funny thing is that I cannot connect to WIFI without GUI. Terminal needs
wpasupplicant package which I recently removed ;) yeah!
