Smile Mouse pointer on black screen after login


After changing the language at a user on my PC and login later,
there was just the mouse pointer on the black screen.
The mouse was movable but no input was possible.
First I had to disable the auto login by booting from another
system and changing the settings.

By using another user account I found out, that the input method
in the menu list changed by changing the language from:
"None" to "Maliit". There were just this 2 methods to choose.

I found the settings here:

/home/anybody/.xinputrc

and it looked like this:


# im-config(8) generated on Wed, 10 May 2017 05:16:13 +0200
run_im maliit
# im-config signature: 94064edc29a4bad6fe34bdba7470b3ba -


So I copied with root rights the settings from my good user account,
to the settings of the bad and commented the bad out.
I wanted to let the old bad one in the list to see later how it was.

Now it looks like this

# im-config(8) generated on Wed, 10 May 2017 05:16:13 +0200
# run_im maliit
# im-config signature: 94064edc29a4bad6fe34bdba7470b3ba -
#
# im-config(8) generated on Wed, 10 May 2017 19:04:32 +0200
run_im xim
# im-config signature: 5c2f3c7151756c6673a558b9201af3c5 -


So just " run_im xim " is active - and IT WORKS!

I posted this because I didn't find help in the net and
others can try this if somebody else has this problem.
