So for some reason gui has vanished after my last update. Naturally, I’ve searched the forum and came across this post:
However, no luck.
Just before, desktop notifications started to appear in some kind of an arabic font and some of the icons from the main desktop panel have disappeared. I wonder if that had anything to do with it.
I can login as usual, specifying credentials, however it’s just CLI afterwards.
startx doesn’t work.
Please help. Thank you.
Can you please join an output of :
sudo systemctl status lightdm

I am under the impression that it’s Missing X server or $DISPLAY scenario, but not sure what’s the best way to go about it.
What was your graphical environnement ?
Ctrl + Alt + F7 doen’t do anything.
sudo kaisen-update was done prior to the GUI collapsing. Did it again just now to the same result.
I was running KDE before that.
It’s asking to select default display manager: lightdm or sddm.
It’s back on, thank you Niki.
I am however puzzled a little why it went away after the update.
Glad the problem is fixed.
I am sorry I can not find out why you lost you GUI.
Have a nice evening
