Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Just having got me a refurb laptop (Lenovo T480 to which I have already installed some other distros) I ran into problems installing Chimarea (present on my desktop for a while now). So I burnt the Daedelus dvd and tried with that with even less success.

On booting I get to a cLi login prompt and I can log in as root or as user.

If I enter 'starx' as user the desktop (xfce I think, kde was also 'installed') loads but locks right up, no mouse, no keyboard, only an error annunciation:

"Power Manager Plugin unexpectedly left the panel"

There is only a hard reset available. Can I recover from this 'lockup' or is a re-install necessary? Beyond being able to log in at cLi level, I can also mount the partition from another system if required.

TIA

That sort of narrows things down a bit.

Right ...
Xserver definitely involved and may have an issue (?) with that xfce plug-in.
Not at all surprised.

When I first set up xfce, the first thing I discovered was that I had to get rid of anything xfce power management related.
But then I have a workstation, not a laptop.

That said, I don't think it anyone will be able to help past this preliminary evaluation unless you post some more data.
I certainly cannot.

You may want to consider posting:

1.
the dmesg printout

~$ sudo dmesg --level=alert,crit,err,warn

2.
the Xorg.0.log file

~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

You may also want to consider running a test by logging in as root and completely removing the xfce4-power-manager software package.

Then reboot and see if you can start the desktop without it.

~$ sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove xfce4-power-manager   

Using the purge options along with auto-remove, will get rid of everything regarding the xfce4-power-manager package.
That will be good for if/when you want to reinstall it again.
ie: (supposedly) no debris left behind.

Best,

A.

Three different Lenovo laptops, loaded and installed on all of them without any problems

Something was wrong with the DVD, I don’t remember anymore.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

A few things to try to recover from the lockup:

Does ctrl-alt-F1 get back to a text console? Try it before the lockup or on another distro, you should have six text consoles (ctrl-alt-F1 to ctrl-alt-F6) and ctrl-alt-F7 would take you back to the GUI.

If you have another system can you log onto the Lenovo T480 over the network by ssh (or possibly telnet)? If you can you could use the ssh session to investigate (px -ef, dmesg, tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log etc) or shut it down relatively gently.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

I haven't purged xfce4 yet because I need it (using kde with other distros). The lockup is complete and immediate, no function keys, nothing. Any form of SSH is unfortunately way above my pay-grade (of clueless mouse-molester). But I did manage these:

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Hello:

No need to purge xfce4.
Just the xfce4-power-manager package which is (apparently) an important part of the problem you are having. 

But before we continue, please add the necessary 'code' tags so that the printouts can be seen as code.
ie: white lettering on black background.

It is easier to see and analyse that way.

Like this:

[code]
Like this ...
[/code]

You can do it manually or select/paint the text and click on the |code block| section.

Thanks.

A.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Thank you, I'll work on this a little more on opportunity ...

A lot has gone down in the last two days, mostly with no internet connection (it never rains but pours). My desktop was due for a little upgrade as well so I installed Daedelus on it, copied the partition to the laptop and booted it. It's missing all the laptop stuff which I don't need anyway.

I installed both XFCE and KDE but it boots into KDE and I don't know how to change that to XFCE which half of my six distros use including Devuan.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Hello:

Thank you ...

You're welcome.

... copied the partition to the laptop and booted it.
I installed both XFCE and KDE but it boots into KDE ...

I'd say completely remove KDE.
But cannot say much beyond that as I have never installed it, much less along another desktop.

Someone else here may have a suggestion on how to do that properly.

Best,

A.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

In the desktop boot window options there should be a choice of session type - kde, xfce, etc. If autoload is enabled and the kde is loaded, just logout.

KDE is a complete working environment that allows you to configure everything from your control center. With a more or less modern computer it is very effective.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Any form of SSH is unfortunately way above my pay-grade (of clueless mouse-molester).

It's worth learning about. Assuming you have the same userid on both your systems just try ssh laptop on the desktop or vice versa (replace "laptop" with the IP address of the laptop if you havn't set up DNS or /etc/hosts entries for it). Reply y (or yes) to the prompt about accepting the host key, then it should ask you for your password.

If it hangs for a bit then times out ping the target to check the IP address is right.

That should get you started. man ssh will tell you lot more if you need to know more. Eg about how to copy files between the systems with scp or sftp.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

Hi, at the cli login, try

startplasma-x11

instead of startx

It's probably trying to start wayland... mine borks with that as well.

I hope this helps.

Re: Daedelus install on Lenovo T480 boots, locks up.

What I've done so far

The login screen was all grey and white, no user names or ids only icons, no session selection KDE/XFCE

Loaded Synaptic and deleted Plasma and all that had to go down with it, as well as xfce4-power-manager.

I boot any one of 6 distros every day, 3 use kde the other 3 XFCE, 3 use openrc 3 use systemd. Debian's all set up for XFCE.

This is one reason I by far prefer slackware's way: you log in at init 3 and THEN startx with  the then desired DE like startx kde, or startx xfce

Thanks every one for the help, may Providence grant you your every wish!

On the white login screen, move your mouse towards the bottom left, there is a box, select plasma-x11

@torquebar

In Debian/Devuan there are essentially 2 runlevels - 1 and 2 (aka 3,4,5). This was also a surprise for me at the time.
