[SOLVED]XFCE - I no longer have a desktop since last update

Postby zombie_ramboz » 2018-08-27 06:47

Hi,

I performed a system update on Saturday and since then I can't access by XFCE desktop. No wallpaper, icons have gone, no right-click menu.

Any ideas on how to get it back?

Thanks

On running:

Code: Select all
# apt install task-xfce-desktop


I see below:

Code: Select all
task-xfce-desktop is already the newest version (3.39).


Which suggests to me the problem is unrelated to the link.

Hmmm...do you have any outside repos attached?

Code: Select all
apt-get install inxi

inxi -r > repos.txt


Then copy and paste the contents of "repos.txt" here.

It might also be something to do with the proprietary Nvidia driver and the latest 4.9 kernel update. If you're using that driver, try
Code: Select all
apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms


and watch the output to make sure it completes without any errors.

Can you please edit your first post in the thread, and add SOLVED to the front of header.
