I did see a message on the update that said something about graphics but I didn’t pay enough attention (my bad I know) It said something about running something at reboot I think
As one of our fairy tales says: “Go there don’t know where, bring me that don’t know what.” . It’s hard to translate.
As a first thing, I’d suggest to search the pacman’s log for error and warning messages. Pacman keeps everything it has done in the /var/log/pacman.log. It’s a huge text file.
This way you could find the old messages to which you didn’t pay enough attention during upgrade.
To not go crazy by looking it up by hand, it’s possible to use two system logs viewers:
- gnome-system-log (horrible Gtk3 tool for Gnome, Cinnamon, probably Mate)
- ksystemlog (beautiful tool for Plasma)
Both permit to comfortably search for everything we wish.
As a second thing, you could trace a program’s executioan in real time. Tail the system log (journalctl -ef) in one terrminal and launch the program from another terminal. In the 1st terminal you’ll see all system messages while they are going to the system log. This way you could catch eventual errors in real time.
But it works well for windowed apps, and may be less suitable for full screen apps.
