Last update caused some unprecedented trouble.
During the update it itself failed due to files existing in filesystem (about 50+ files). That was overcome by manually removing those files.
After the successful update GDM gave me a white “Oh no” screen after reboot. I dug in deep and found that startx from a VTT would not work either. In the log a message about no cursor being found… (journalctl -b)
I then changed the cursor through "gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface cursor-theme ‘Adwaita’ ", for the current user and was able to get a destktop. I discovered in de XDG settings somwhere in /etc that it expects xcursor-breeze to be present. I checked software and found that it was not installed.
After installing xcursor-breeze everything works again.
Very strange that this dependency does not get installed and why this cursor theme in the first place?
I was able to fix this but I am holding my breath for all the noob linux convertees I assisted in the field. They might jump back to windows when this happens…
