[SOLVED] Qtile crashes after update

Post by c0d1n61at3 » Sat Jun 22, 2019 9:44 am

Hello,

I have been using ArcoLinuxB Qtile min for a while now. Been awesome, but recently after an update something broke, and I need help to fix it.

After I log in, the Qtile window manager is non-functional. The desktop seems fine. Mouse works too. But none of the keyboard shorts work anymore. I cannot open a terminal to fix anything. The usual system bar that is on the top is now on the bottom, and I see it says "Config Err!" on the left. On the right if says "default config" and the time. I also see on the lower left that the desktop icons that AcroLinux usually has is now "a s d f u i o p".

If you know how to fix this please help.

Thanks.

Updating qtile breaks qtile on Arch Linux.

All is well with qtile.

Update your systems

Code: Select all

update

Code: Select all

skel
and reboot

If you downgraded qtile, take it out again in /etc/pacman.conf
