Lightdm fails to start

hey all,

yesterday my xfce menu panel all of a sudden disappeared, then shortly after my screen went black.

I did a hard reboot (5sec on button until off, then reboot)

and now I can’t get to the login screen anymore.

when I go into TTY F2, I can login and I can see that lightdm failed to start.

How do I fix this?

look for oddities in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf - maybe your graphics driver needs attention - some times required with dual-graphics.

It worked fine almost all week, I am going back to a previous backup with timeshift

I tried reinstalling lightdm and gtk greeter but it didnt work

it worked. I fixed it with timeshift

reinstalling lightdm and collateral didnt work for me
