Black screen after login after update

Hi and welcome to the community @lori92ro!

This is a known issue. See:

For now the workaround is to downgrade and ignore updates to the package until it is fixed upstream.

Also, forum’s :mag: function:

Could you also share your hardware specs, in case the downgrade didn’t work?

I just solve the problem, I had the same blackscreen after login.

The cursor was moving, but nothing else happen.

I just downgrade to the last libx11 and it’s working again.

What is your DE?
I am on GNOME and haven’t had the issue?

Are you using wayland?

I am using Xfce4


That’s perhaps the reason!
Give a minute, I’ll try to log in on Xorg.

Thanks for all answer. I downgrade libx11 at version 1.8. and my pc restart work. Thank you very much!


What’s your version of libx11?

The upgraded one:

[2022-06-09T08:11:55+0200] [ALPM] upgraded libx11 (1.8-1 -> 1.8.1-1)

$ pacman -Ss libx11
extra/libx11 1.8.1-1 [installed]

Well, I guess we simply allow Arch devs to sort this issue for those that are affected. Meanwhile we can use the workaround.

So it seems to be XFCE only? Didn’t get chance to try other DM/DE/WM and am now at work.

Not sure, but maybe.
Currently I can’t test other DEs, unfortunately.
