I’ve just installed i3 and after using it for around 10 minutes (and not being able to open anything using dmenu — nothing loaded), I tried going back to MATE. I’m running Mint 18.2 Sonya.
I get the following errors:
initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused /etc/mdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup... /etc/mdm/Xsession: 27: /home/bthalenberg/.profile: [[: not found localuser:bthalenberg being added to access control list
Everything seems to work from tty, I even tried removing i3 but it did not fix the issue. I’m posting from my phone, sorry for the crappy formatting
