Sorry to bother you all, but I am having some problems with my Manjaro install, and need some advice and help.
I have some problems when the system comes out of hibernation and i try and log in.
The login screen is frozen after coming out of hibernation, the mouse pointer works and moves around, but I can't click on anything.
The user choice is locked to the last user logged in and there is no opportunity to select a different user. I can't select restart or anything else. The only way to switch users after hibernation is a hard reset of the computer system. More than one person uses this computer. The other person is my 81yr old windows 10 user mother who I am trying to seduce into using linux as her main computer.
The last user before hibernation hits, can log in to the system, but the blinker does not show up in the password field in the login box, and you don't see the dots appear that you usually see when you type in your password.
How do I fix this?
Also, I posted on this forum about another hibernation issue, under "power manager error". I don't know if that error message has anything to do with this login problem.
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.login1.SleepverbNotSupported: Not enough swap space for hibernation
I am still reading the wiki pages on arch and manjaro about how to do swap files to fix the hibernation problem, but it seems a little beyond my current knowledge and skill level as a linux newbie.
For example, to use Gparted to create a linux swap partition, I think I have to unmount the main drive to resize or create a new partition, but Gparted doesn't let me. I have a default ext4 931mb partition Manjaro XFCE 18.04 install on my system with 8gb RAM and 1TB HDD
Is the Gparted denial of my partition because I have the Manjaro linux system installed and running on that partition? If so, how do I unmount and partition the drive without doing a full reinstall? Any advice would be appreciated, as I am inexperienced with linux and out of ideas at the moment.
Once I fix the hibernation swap file problem, will this fix the login screen freeze problem too?
thanks and regards
