Bodhi suddenly won't boot to gui
Posted 09 July 2016 - 09:00 PM
Today, I was exiting from a shell and all of a sudden the window top bars from every open application disappeared along with the main task manager bar.
The bodhi splash screen comes up and then just goes to black.
I can hit esc at the spash screen and see the boot process stop at: "0000:00:1d.0 * Starting Timidity++ alsa midi execution... [ok]
From here I'm able to Ctrl + alt <- (which is to the right of esc) and log in via tty
When I try and run "enlightenment_start" it stops at: "enlightenment cannot initialize encore_x! E17: begin shutdown procedure!"
I'm running bodhi 2.4.0 / linux 3.11.0-15-generic #23~precise1-Ubuntu i386
Also interesting to note that some of the getdeb.bodhilinux.com urls are returning 404 when I run apt-get update.
Any have any ideas where I can start?

This might be a shot in the dark with all the different issues you are having. But I can't tell you how many times I have for no apparent reason been greeted with the black screen. I would suggest you start with the display manager. From your tty console try installing slim. It is a light weight display manager with few dependencies and you can use it to make sure lightdm is not the culprit.
I believe the command is
sudo apt-get install slim
Hope this helps.

Start by trying to reset your desktop settings by moving your ~/.e directory from your tty login. A simple:
cd mv .e .e_bk
Should do it.
The enlightenment_start command will only work if you have an active X server running, so that response from it is normal / expected.
As for your comment about the getdeb repo - that is something we used to provide a mirror for, but do not any longer. You can find the official versions of those repos here -> http://www.getdeb.net/welcome/
Also keep in mind that Bodhi's 2.x.y branch has less than a year left until it hits end of life.
