Failed to start Light Display Manager, exhausted my options

No, but I didn’t try very hard to get it to work. I tried installing SDDM but after a few tries and having access to my data, I decided to back my data up and reformat the drive. I’ll try switching display managers on this manjaro install when I have more free time.

Btw what was the reasoning behind removing xauthority? Xauthority is what handles user auth in light dm?

well if you are going to reinstall, theres no need to switch the manager, if the lightdm works…
you mentioned above and shoved some logs regarding the xauthority, so deleting it can help when you are stuck on a black screen
