On my next restart after print driver related installations, I can proceed no further than my login page. I input what I KNOW to be the correct password only to be stuck on the same page.
on the terminal (ctrl+alt+f1):
trying xinit gets me:
Fatal server error:
(EE) Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again
No protocol specified
Xinit: giving up
Xinit: unable to connect to X server: Resource temporarily unavailable
xinit: server error
removing the file doesn't change anything
startx (no matter how many times I retry) gives the following:
Loading extension GLX
(II)[KMS] Kernel modesetting enabled.
reporting 5 7 1 8
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
warnings for compat map for group 2,3, 4 redifined using new definition
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
(II) AIGLX: Suspending AIGLX clients for VT switch
I have to force stop and then might get a unexpected signal 2
I'm at a complete loss right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
