Ever since I rebooted my computer, ElementaryOS has no splash screen and instead loads into a "terminal". It tells me I need to log in, and once I do I only have access to a "terminal". (It's not a true terminal like URxvt, but instead just a black and white command line).
I have been messing around with i3 and its counterparts for a couple of days now. Nothing has been wrong with it, from what I can tell. I have been messing around with ~/.Xresources, and I put a xrandr command in some (I have no idea where, sorry) .conf file to change my display refresh rate to 144hz.
When I turned my computer off the last time it went directly to a black "underscore" screen instead of turning off completely. I had to turn off the computer manually.
