Lightdm can't load after playing around with mesa/git

Hi there,

I’ve been switching back and forth mesa and mesa-git, but at this point after removing mesa-git and installing the repo mesa i’m stuck at “failed to start light display manager”. I’ve gone through the wiki and other documents and can’t get xfce to load. The worst part is that i have a bunch of borg backups, made with vorta and i have no idea how to restore them. I suck…

Anyway, i can’t provide logs since i’m on another machine, but can anyone provide a list of required minimum dependencies in order to get the DE functioning again?

lightdm --debug --test-mode
Xserver 0, can’t launch X server X, not found in path

Solved: sudo pacman -S xorg

sorry for wasting anyone’s time…
