• I can't log in

    How are you?

    I faced some errors when I tried to update the system, so I did research, and I found someone had the same issue. He resolved it by removing the package and reinstall it.
    So I did that the package is called X265, so after I reinstalled it I restarted the system, but I could not login!
    When I write my password and enter. It go to black screen for a few seconds, and then go back to the login screen

    So what can I do to resolve the situation?

  • @mr-momo
    After the login failure, can you press a key combination Ctrl-Alt-F2 ?
    That should bring you a terminal where you can log in and run pacman and other commands to fix the problems.

  • Note that it may not immediately go to the terminal, a few seconds may be spent before that.

    And for the record, you can get back from the terminal with key combination Ctrl-Alt-F1.

  • @mr-momo said in I can't log in:

    removing the package

    that was the failure here… how did youi do that? as it may uninstall nessasary packages…

  • or do you uninstall with -Rdd?

    sudo pacman -Rdd x265

    Thank you for your response.

    As I said I looked for a solution, and someone said he faced the same issue, and he resolved it by reinstall the package. Also, I thought when I reinstall the package it will reinstall all the packages were removed with it, but it did not.

    I removed it via package manager

  • @mr-momo
    Could you show the output of command
    ls -l /var/cache/pacman/pkg/pacman-5*

  • @manuel

    Thank you again for your response and your time!

    I tried to go to the terminal then installed gnome via sudo pacman -S gnome.
    And it worked well.
    Thank you very much!
