Hi, i am new to Manjaro and am booting from a USB drive. After booting up manjaro, it seems to freeze right at the desktop, and the welcome to Manjaro window never pops up. A desktop image appears without a mouse cursor and no access to any applications. I am completely unaware as to why this is occuring.
Can you try booting into TTY?
You can try doing
Ctrl+Alt + F2 during boot where you get all that text, then put username and password.
When there, make sure you are using the correct driver and the latest kernel
Nonfree for Nvidia and Free for well basically everything else haha, share your specs if unsure by doing
