I recently (1-2 weeks ago) did a clean install of Antergos with the Deepin Desktop Environment and everything was working really nicely.
Around the 20th July, 2018, the Deepin packages were updated, and now my DDE is kind of messed up.
When logging in, the screen goes blank for about 1 minute before the desktop is finally loaded. You see nothing but a black screen and the cursor. Right clicking doesn’t bring up a context menu, hot corners don’t work, but eventually the desktop will load. This happens every single time you try to log in. I’ve tried it 4-5 times and it’s happened on multiple machines that I have installed the Deepin Desktop on.
Fonts being used are not the ones I have selected. While the configuration panel lets me change the fonts, the windows and the dock do not use the fonts that I have selected. Even after changing the fonts and logging out and back in, the fonts do not change and are not using the ones I selected.
Icons are not the ones I selected. The icon set has been reset to what looks like the default icons, even though in the configuration panel the chosen icon set is the one I had updated to when I did the clean install. If I try to change the icon set, nothing happens. My configuration is basically ignored completely by Deepin.
I installed Cinnamon as an alternative and that seems to be working fine. I’m not sure what happened to Deepin with the latest update but it managed to mess up a perfectly clean installation that didn’t have much configuration done, just basic theme updates and configuration changes through the config panels.
Has anyone else experienced this, or am I the only one? I really don’t want to have to do another clean install in case the same issues occur even with the clean install.
