GhostBSD 10.3p18 Desktop problem on ACER laptop

Post by BSaidus » Sun Apr 30, 2017 6:15 pm

Hi..
I succesfully installed GhostBSD 10.3 on my laptop ACER Aspire E15 and it works fine.
But After update the whole system using : freebsd-update fetch install & pkg upgrade something goes wrong ... I can loggin in my session but no icon on desktop, no possibility to do write click on desktop & finnaly there is many application refusing to start, even file manager, no caja.....
So any idea how to bypass this??

thanks

Hi BSaidus,

it's more likely that there is a problem with packages than breakage due to updating the base system. I would suggest to reinstall all packages as the first strategy. You can do so using:

Code: Select all

pkg update
pkg upgrade -f
Most likely something was corrupted somehow or for whatever strange reason incompatible versions of some libraries were installed together or something like that. Reinstalling all third party applications should solve that problem.
