I can't access garuda lxqt

Sou novato em Linux

Sou novato em Linux, tenho apenas 3 anos de uso que me esforço para aprender, já tentei varias distribuições, fedora, manjaro, ubuntu e acabei ficando com o Mint Mate por ser leve, não aquecer a maquina como o Manjaro, eu gostei dele mas acabava com a bateria muito rapido. E vi uma reportagem com o Garuda Linux e instalei o LXQT primeiro numa vbox e achei bem rapido, primeiro transferi para uma partição, é que meu notebook samsung está com o bug UEFI e não permite mais gravar entradas no boot e eu uso refind no boot, mas não funcionou muito bem, depois resolvi instalar direto e também não funcionou muito bem, todos os problemas com as atualizações, então achei que podeira ser a ISO e baixei a mais recente ontem, após a atualização não aparece o menu de boot e vai direto para uma pagina de login que não havia visto antes e simplesmente não aceita a senha, criei outro usuário e também não dá acesso. O que pode ser? Como reverto isso? Só havia instalado o anbox, que não funcionou, e google chrome, não mexi em mais nada! Tudo padrão. Nessa tela aparece a opção do ambiente x11 e se tentar logar nele trava. Só tenho algum acesso pelo alt,shit,f2 mesmo se rodar garida-inxi lá como vou passar para vocês? Pelo live-cd posso fazer isso do sistema instalado?

I'm new to Linux, I've only been using it for 3 years that I'm trying to learn,

I've tried several distributions, fedora, manjaro, ubuntu and I ended up with Mint Mate because it's light, it doesn't heat up the machine like Manjaro, I liked it but It ran out of battery very quickly.
And I saw a report with Garuda Linux and I installed LXQT first in a vbox and I found it very fast, first I transferred it to a partition, is that my samsung notebook has the UEFI bug and no longer allows recording entries at boot and I use refind at boot , but it didn't work very well, then I decided to install directly and it didn't work very well either, all the problems with the updates, so I thought it could be the ISO and I downloaded the latest one yesterday,
after the update the boot menu doesn't appear and goes straight to a login page that I hadn't seen before and it just doesn't accept the password,
I created another user and it doesn't give access either.
What can it be?
How do I reverse this?
I had only installed anbox, which didn't work, and google chrome,
I didn't touch anything else! All standard.
On this screen appears the option of the x11 environment and if you try to log in it crashes.
I only have some access via alt,shit,f2 even if I run garida-inxi there how will I pass it on to you?
Through the live-cd can I do this from the installed system?

Welcome :slight_smile:

Yes, please.

I managed to recover the system, in fact I installed it again and in the update, the login screen appears again that does not accept the password, it seems that the user's home is read-only and prevents access to .Xauthority, which prevents startup . I installed the desktop gnome(gdm) and it managed to start the desktop, and I didn't have anything installed from lxqt in octopi, it seems that the conflict between wireplumber and pipewire removes everything from lxqt, it's that neither the garuda assistant nor the octopi can solve the conflict in the update and only removing the pipeware manually is it possible to proceed with the update. When this ends, not even the off button works, it is not possible to access anything or the terminal through the shortcut. And in fact, even after installing everything in lxqt's octopi, on the system screens, octopi, garduda's home screen, the buttons to minimize and increase the window do not appear and the alt/tab does not work either. Is it possible to solve this, reset lxqt desktop to default?

I edit your post, please read

I am reluctant to weigh in here, because it appears you are weaving a very tangled web.

Is it not SDDM? Can you describe it, or take a photo or something?

Can you please clarify? These two things are not the same.

This sometimes happens if running commands with sudo or as root when they should not be. Try to delete it from the tty:

sudo rm ~/.Xauthority

It will be automatically recreated next time you log in.

This is a creative workaround, however I can't help but think this is going to cause problems. Gnome has a lot of opinionated choices it will drag into the mix. I can already see your stack is getting a little messy:

:grimacing: I hate to say so but there is just going to be Gnome all over your LXQT and stuff is probably going to break from time to time because of this. How are your snapshots looking?

Your efforts to resolve this conflict with Garuda Assistant have left you with all three sound servers running:

I think you should take the PulseAudio server back down for now, it is very unlikely this will be helpful in your case.

As far as trying to resolve the conflict with Octopi, that is not the correct way to update. Please update by running this command in the terminal:


That should automatically resolve the dependency difficulty you are experiencing.

If it does not go well, please paste the input and output from the command into the thread so we can take a look.
