My problem is relatively straightforward, even though what made it happen isn’t, it appears to me. So, I was looking for a way to scale an application individually, found a tool called run_scaled which was employed by xrandr to create a server for that. I then ran the command run_scaled with the path to the program, but it didn’t open the client, so I tried a few more times until I appended sudo before it. Somehow it probably overrided my display settings, avoiding any application to launch and the login GUI to hung forever when I press enter after filling the fields. Now I would need it to reset I reckon, because the only way my user can log in is through the command line interface. And obviously no graphics can launch there.
I’ve learned my mistake, preppending sudo without it being indicated. But I would like to have the controls back once again. My distro is Manjaro 5 with the .12 release I believe by heart.
Beforehand, thanks for returning and anyone else who comes hereafter. Yes, I shouldn’t have hurried to send it. With the title I meant the xpra settings and/or the run_scaled utility, which messed up my setup maybe on to permissions too, and any recovery strategy I could use to go through the graphical login interface that freezes once I’ve pressed enter/clicked the arrow to log in. Don’t think ~/.bash.rc would help cause I can still run it, but only on a virtual command line in the locker screen. If I need to sort all the apps back to their installation states I’ll probably do it, if the issue is not actually on a standalone file.
The bad is that I’ve tried creating one, it goes ahead but I can’t login as the terminal returns it failed. And I’m sure I typed it correctly, Those were two attempts with different usernames and passwords. I’m assuming it is due to the sudo prefixed in the command I’m alluding to.
