I was running Antergos with the Cinnamon desktop on my laptop Acer Aspire E15 A10-8700P Radeon R8-M365DX, and after upgrading to the latest system my laptop won’t boot to the desktop.
Using the terminal, I ran:
sudo pacman -Syyu
Once the update was finished, I rebooted the computer and after showing various scripts running, it finished by displaying a black screen with a dialog box saying "Failed to load session “cinnamon” with a “Log Out” button beneath. The mouse doesn’t work, so I can’t click on “Log Out.”
I suspect I’ll have to boot up with a Live USB to fix it. I’ve downloaded the latest ISO; will I have to re-install the system, or is there a script I can fix, somewhere? If it’s a problem with the Cinnamon desktop, perhaps I should choose Gnome or XFCE this time?
I’m not sure this problem only happened to me, which is why I’m posting it.
