Aren't you get the terminal by pressing ctrl alt f1? It should be possible. If not, just run the live session from usb or cd and delete .e folder from the installed partition. Go to the full post

Hi everybody!

 

I was  playing  with  iBars,  Shelves and Gadgets (following instructions from Roger Carter's Guide btw) and something went wrong ...

My Desktop started blinking and that's basically what it had been doing ever since ...

I mean the desktop is constantly blinking and the system is not responding. Reloading does not help.

This is relevant only for my default profile.  Guest profile is alright.

 

Any thoughts on how to fix this?





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

The first aid could be switching to terminal and delete .e folder.

Thanks for your response!

Actually I had this idea, but I am not able to run neither terminal nor any other program  from my profile. And the Guest profile lacks sudo rights to deal with .e folder.

I wonder if there is any way to get access to that .e folder without logging in to my profile?

Dont be so short with explanations.

ctrl+alt+and F key gives you a terminal, called tty. Normally you are on tty7.

Log in at any other tty and issue "mv .e eold", that will rename or MoVe the config files. Then switch back to tty7 and log in.

Thank you guys very much!

Renaming .e folder via tty worked perfectly :)
