Screen blanks and only flashes eagle

Can't post garuda-inxi.

My desktop went black, and hitting any key or mouse flashes the eagle screen with no text box, then goes black again.

I entered a console, and typed

sudo systemctl restart ldm

which returned

Failed to restart ldm.service: Unit ldm.service not found

Any ideas?

Restore last working snapshot from grub.

I'll do that. Right now ddrescue is running in a last ditch attempt to restore my /home folder.

And my /home drive is defective and is read-only. I/O error. Another drive ordered.

Are you trying to restart the LightDM service? The service for LightDM is lightdm.service, or you can always use systemd’s symlink for the active display manager:

systemctl restart display-manager.service
