Lenovo yoga 11S Hardware/software setup

Postby devind0 » 2019-02-01 02:40

Hello. A customer recently gave me a Lenovo yoga 11S laptop running windows 10. I do not want to use windows 10, i wanted to get Debian installed. I usually install the XFCE variant of debian from the live CD.
The install ran through fine, and I am able to get to the login screen, but after typing in my login info, it just sits at the desktop background, nothing further loads and i never see the window manager / icons.
I can switch over to to a virtual terminal, the system is installed and working properly otherwise.

There is a nice guide on the laptop already on the debian wiki, however i have not been able to log in to the point i can configure any further hardware.

You should include filename of the exact image you installed from in the post, and anything unusual about the install like encryption, lvm, multiple disks, etc...

I would probably try to restart the display-manager.service from tty. You can use systemctl to check it's status. If that does not work, you could check that xfwm and/or xfdesktop are running, or maybe confirm that lightdm is launching the correct xsession. The logging is in journalctl, and that will have a clue surely about what is going on. There was also a nasty bug about entropy that hung a lot of systems, but I believe it only affected testing/buster, and only on some systems or kernels.

I found several other suggestions searching for xfce+"no desktop" on search engine, did you do any searches to try and solve it already?

Is there anything in the Xorg log?

Sorry to waste time here. I suspected a corrupted install image. Upon Reinstalling the system is functioning properly and I am able to use the desktop.
