• Not loading wallpapers, unable to screenshot.


    Hello everyone (again)!
    I was trying to discover some hotkeys and a possible shortcut to edit screenshot options by holding the print screen button down. I held it for ~15-20 seconds and when I released, the system completely locked up (I imagine while it was attempting to screenshot). I had to hold the power button down on the PC to restart it. Once it booted back, ALL of my personalisations were gone. My wallpaper had reverted back to the original Deepin wallpaper and everything I added to the dock was gone. I really don’t even know where to begin to fix this. I removed deepin entirely with:

    pacman -Rc deepin deepin-extra

    and then reinstalled deepin by:

    pacman -S deepin deepin-extra

    But to no avail. Everything is still how it was when it messed up. I cannot even change the wallpaper. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? I have attempted holding down the print screen button again, but it does nothing (will not even take a screenshot). Any advice or help on this would be absolutely awesome.
    When I attempt gnome-screenshot in terminal as root I get:

    [[email protected] tim]# gnome-screenshot
    (gnome-screenshot:1564): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL *: g_dbus_connection_call_sync_internal: assertion ‘G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)’ failed * Message: Unable to use GNOME Shell’s builtin screenshot interface, resorting to fallback X11.
    (gnome-screenshot:1564): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed

    And screenfetch is no longer taking screenshots either, thought it is not giving me any errors.

  • Does anyone on this forum know how to do anything?

  • Sorry that I cannot help as I run the Xfce DE, but, I held my PrtScrn key down for about 2 secs and I had soooo many screenshots popup, so I imagine if you held yours down for 15secs your system would have had a s***load of screenshots which could have corrupted something, not sure what.
    When I remove a package and I WANT EVERYTHING GONE I use
    pacman -Rns <package>
    it will the prompt with all the packages to be removed.
    Then I even use pamac and check for Orphans and remove them as well.
    Not sure if any of this will help you now, perhaps in the future though.
    PS;
    Your 2nd post was kinda insulting so no surprise that no one responded.
    I have a feeling you were very frustrated, but your post didn’t help you get an answer either.
    Anyways, good luck.
