So I’ve been running Manjaro for a little under a year but when I booted up my computer this evening I got this error:
[FAILED] Failed to start Light Display Manager
I do remember seeing a big update install the previous day, like 133 at once, so I’m guessing that caused the issue. I don’t have access to my desktop so I can’t really copy and paste things into a forum post, but I can try to type it out if you need some info. This isn’t an essential computer, just what I use daily at home, I still have my work laptop, but I would love to fix this.
Using mhwd -li I know I have installed currently:
From tty, I have tried:
“pacman -Syyu” and reboot
“downgrade lightdm” (with version 1:1.30.0-4 and 1:1.30.0-3) and reboot
“pacman -S linux58-nvidia-440xx” and reboot
mhwd -i pci video-linux
mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-450x
The command “systemctl status lightdm” gives me:
lightdm.service - Light Display Manager

Thanks for your help,
