I got myself in trouble. I hope you can help me get back my Manjaro Plasma theme. When I was shutting down Manjaro, the shut down and the log off, both, were unresponsive. I waited a few minutes and tried to shut down again. There was no response again. I tried “control+alt+delete” combination. A bad habit from my Windows days! The screen switched to black screen with white bold letters, stating that such option (“control+alt+delete” combination) was not available and suggested “control+alt+f2” instead.
When I tried “control+alt+f2”, I ended up in terminal screen and tried a few things and could not go back to the desktop theme. So, I made the mistake of powering off the computer, holding down the power button.
When I turned the computer back on, a totally different login screen came up with the message below.
“Select your user and enter password” (in white letters.)
(And continued the message below in red letters)
“The current theme cannot be loaded due to the errors below, please select another theme.”
“file:///usr/share/sddm/themes/breath/Main.qml:26:1:plugin cannot be loaded for module “org.kde.plasma.core”: Cannot load library /usr/lib/qt/qml/org/kde/plasma/core/libcorebindingsplugin.so: (libplist-2.0.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
Located in the top left corner, the login screen provided me with “Session” option to choose from, with a drop down list. The drop down Session list had the options below to choose from.
GNOME on Wayland (Wayland)
GNOME on Xorg
When I chose “Plasma (X11)”, which was my Manjaro theme, to login and entered my password, it looped back to the very same login screen as if “Plasma (X11)” didn’t exist.
Is there any possible way to get back my Manjaro Plasma theme? I spent so much time and energy to customize widgets on desktop and set them up and everything so meticulously. It was so useful, functional, not to mention!, “pleasing” to boot up Manjaro to my desktop theme and see all the info, I needed, displayed “live” on my desktop. Even if I had all the time and energy to do everything all over again, I don’t even remember how I did all that stuff. It was a long time ago. I use Manjaro as my main operating system. I really, truly DON’T want to reinstall it from scratch again! Please help!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
