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.
I have installed Deepin on my Antergos system and I do believe I have installed all the necessary dependencies as I followed the Deepin Arch Wiki very precisely. I have added lightdm-deepin-greeter to the greeter-session in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf as well as editing ~/.xinitrc to add startdde. In my initial set up, after logging in at the greeter screen, Deepin would load and the desktop background would flash and then disappear leaving me with some sort of triangle filled background that I could not right-click on to change along with having the top panel with the Gnome footprint showing that I could bring up the App menu with, but could not right click to edit that panel either. I would bring up a console and type startdde to which the background would load and the dock would show up, but I could not click on any applications on the dock or right click on it. Also, it would give me a slew of errors, but one that would not stop and would make my PC speaker beep every 1.5 seconds for eternity:
<warning> utils.go:231: Query prop backlight failed: 83
I edited .xinitrc once again and added deepin-session to the very bottom on a whim, and now it loads everything without my having to enter startdde (yay!), but I am still having the issue with the dock being unusable and now I can “feel” it lagging/locking up every 3-5 seconds for about 1 second at a time. The gnome footprint along with the top panel is totally missing too. It appears if the same thing is happening as I can see it constantly adding my GPU in the Xorg log.
Here is the pastebin of Xorg.0.log: http://pastebin.com/bmQLJSwk
Also, here is a screenshot of what it looks like currently: https://sli.mg/5C2ZwG
You can see that the top panel is completely missing.
Does anyone have any ideas how to go about fixing this? I’m pretty lost.
I am currently doing a pacman -Syu in hopes that maybe an update will fix the issue, but I really doubt it will. Any suggestions/help will be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thanks for your time.
