No GUI at boot after disk full

while installing some python packages using sudo pip, I got an error message saying ‘disk full’. I removed some python packages and rebooted. Now, I can boot but not login with any GUI. I use Cinnamon.

I managed to open a console with Ctrl-alt-F2, cleared the pacman cache, with no change.

Can I do anything to delete unneeded files apart from reinstalling manjaro?

Thanks for your help.

Never use pip with sudo. Period. Use a virtual python environment → python-virtualenv

I see a huge thread coming about to fix such stuff, what is not easy at all when 2 package manager do their own stuff.

I completely reinstalled Manjaro by writing an USB stick on a terminal. Everything is perfect now. Thank you.
