thank you in advance to who will be able to solve my problem.
Since a week the system has been working erratically. Strange, because everything was working very well until then, I even considered migrating completely from Manjaro to EndeavourOS.
The menu of the (“application” menu) disappears after I launch XFCE. The only way to launch apps is to right-click on the desktop; but apps open on one half of the screen and it’s impossible to drag/drop them. Also if I launch a console (crtl+alt+t) I have to close the open apps to be able to write to the console.
My system :
HP G4 - 8G° RAM - EndeavourOS installed on a 3.5" HDD that is plugged into a USB port
Graphics card :
lspci | egrep “3D|VGA”
01:00.0 VGA Compatible Controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107GL [Quadro P400] (rev a1)
As i wrote, i am on my root session, & no issue on that session. Its the only way to connect to the system.
yes it’s a desktop computer (HP G4) & i made an online install + XFCE.
How can i be sure i’ve select the right Nvidia drivers ?
This is a weird one and I’m no expert but I’m thinking graphics here. How about this: When logged in as root, delete your user. Then download the open source graphics drivers and delete the nvidia ones. After this make a new user. There are some stages to go through here and I’m not sure how to do them without breaking your system but I think I’m on the right track with this. Perhaps someone can help with this?
I am no expert on this either. It looks like you have nouveau and nvidia 455.23.04 installed. What happens when you try to log into your user? Also can you explain more about what you selected driver wise during the install?
Hello thanks for helping me.
As i wrote, when i try to log into my user i cannot access to the applications menu & when i log into root i’ve a full access on my desktop.
I selected the driver with the “Welcome” menu
I’ve tried to connect this morning to my user account & it loook like it’s working fine. I need to test it several times before being sure everything ok. I will come back sooner to give you a feed back.
Well friends, i’m still having an issue with my system :
1°) When booting on my pricipal user, i’ve no applications menu on my screen (Pic1). The only way to work on my PC is the right clic.
2°) When i lauch a programm (ie chromium) i cannot drag it. It is stuck on the right part of my screen.
So i’m anable to work properly. It’s both a waste of time, but maybe the solution a) is to create a new principal user from my root or … b) to reinstall a fresh sytem.
Just a passing thought… Can you get the Welcome app running? I assume that is xfce - and there should be an option to install the EndeavourOS theming there. Try it, and reboot after - should re-enable your panels and such, as well as the Whisker menu…
