If someone here speaks Spanish and can support me, I will be very grateful, if not, then I will continue using the translator.

I hope you can help me soon, I need to recover files from
my thesis and my work.

I tried to start a snapshot from grub, but the same thing happened, neither the panel nor the latte-dock are shown.
Right click on the desktop and add a new panel.
Brave (internet explorer) works. From here I write to you.
But I can't get it to start Dolphin (file manager) or Konsole (terminal?)

When I tried to restore a previous snapshot from grub, during boot I got this message:

Configuration file "/var/lib/sddm/config/sddm-greeterrc" not writable. Please contact your system administrator.

Also say that before the failure I installed some package that required the internet browser to play radio from a web page.

Maybe some of that information will help.

I can open Openoffice, but when I try to open or save a file the program closes.
and a little window appears with the message that it stopped working, also when I want to use the imp pnt button that error message appears.
Paper holder works (ctrl+c, ctrl+v)

==Update 2==
I rebooted from the usb stick, to try to rescue my files from there, but the /root directory was blocked, do you know how I can get my files out?

==update 3==

Kernel panic not syncing: VFS: Una le to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)


Hi there, it seems like you were hit by partial upgrade.
Try fully updating your laptop


when I try to open any application (such as Garuda Welcome) it is seen that it tries to open the new window and immediately closes. A system message appears:
The application closed unexpectedly.
The same with the terminal.

How I can try an full update without the terminal?

You said Konsole wasn't working, but have you tried Yakuake drop down terminal? There is a good chance that it is there since you have KDE version of Garuda. Try running Yakuake using krunner (Alt+Space). After that, the F12 key will bring back the terminal drop down if it ever goes away.


in terminal.

And please post your


as text.


ok i just tried yakuake
and the same system notification appeared:
Yakuake closed unexpectedly, please report this bug to help improve this software.

I can't use the terminal, and neither can yakuake
That command: "garuda-inxi"
I can't use it without terminal.

Alt + Space

Or use TTY :slight_smile:

I don't know what TTY is, can you guide me?

Ctrl + Alt + F3
Login in.


Nice, im reading about tty

Use garuda-welcome - chroot

BTW, your files are not in /root

It's already rebooted, and now the panel and latte-dock show up, but I can't access my files yet, konsole doesn't work yet either.

Try/use alacritty.
IDK, what you are doing :slight_smile: Did konsole work sometimes before?

LOL, I'm sorry, I don't really know what I'm doing either, so please help here.
(yes, Konsole works before)

For some reason alacritty terminal did work. I already ran the command that they asked me (garuda-inxi) I updated my post.
