Let me just lead off by saying that due to the circumstances, I cannot post my inxi -Faz, as I can't access any desktop, nor can I connect to the internet for some reason with wpa_supplicant (says there's no config file and creating one, even with sudo leads to "permission denied") which leaves the only way I could feasibly include it being to take a picture, which is understandably against forum rules.
I hope you'll consider offering whatever form of assistance that you can all the same.
I've also looked in this forum and all over Google for examples of other people experiencing this issue with very little luck, however, I'm severely hampered by only being able to use my phone.
As the subject of this post indicates when I get to the login screen, I have no desktop environments with which to log into with the one exception being Kodi, which obviously isn't very helpful for providing any way of getting back at working system. Also, I'm not certain what the normal login screen/greeter is but the one that I'm greeted with now is sddm, I believe.
In case your gut instinct is to instruct me to restore a previously created snapshot, that was my very first move. However, for some reason, despite the fact that Snapper is the very package responsible for creating the snapshots available in grub upon boot, when I enter the desktop environment after login and try to restore said snapshot, I'm greeted with a message from snapper instructing me to use Timeshift in order to restore that particular snapshot. Which is strange, because Timeshift no longer exists on my machine so it has to be Snapper that's creating them. I attributed this to (possibly) being due to the fact that when the move was made to Snapper, the name and location of the snapshots didn't change, however that hasn't kept Snapper from creating them and storing them in that very location.
Even still, I tried to boot into a snapshot that was created before Garuda moved away from Timeshift in favor of Snapper, thinking that worst case scenario, I'd just have a bunch of updating to do. However, even with Timeshift, I'm unable to get anywhere. I get a message saying the restoration completed successfully but upon reboot it's as if nothing happened at all. Same greeter. Same lack of desktop environments to log into with the exception of Kodi.
I'm kind of at a loss here, especially since I'm unable to connect to Wi-Fi and don't have any way of connecting via ethernet cable readily available to me. If that's the option I have to go then so be it. But it seems to me there's got to be some options outside of relocating my entire setup etc.
I can't remember the name of it off hand, but I did find a post somewhere where someone was having difficulty accessing their WPA supplicant config file and the eventual conclusion was that it's no longer necessary to modify, as it's handled by another package, the name of which escapes me at the moment. But upon trying to go that route it appeared as though the packaging question existed on my machine. However, getting any further than that was a fail. As such, with my fairly limited knowledge set, at least for the issue at hand, dropping to a tty doesn't do me much good.
I'm sorry to ask for assistance without providing the normal prerequisite info, as I don't really like to reach out to others for assistance with my setup at all if I can help it, but I'm really up Shit Creek here.
