I installed Elementary and a few packages and tweaks in about 15-20 minutes. Everything seems to run fine but if I launch the files app the OS instantly crashes. It’s like I typed sudo service lightdm restart into the terminal. I get a blank screen then the login page. If I try to log in its very sluggish and the dock wont load. I would compare it to having windows explorer crash. Practically unusable until I do a full system reboot.

Not sure if there’s a way to debug or log what’s happening. I’m still very new to Linux. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling files but that didn’t seem to work.

  • Can you edit your question and add the lines of code you have used in order to install these 'few packages' including the elementary tweaks? You can use cat ~/.bash_history to find them, for example – Bo rislav May 20 '20 at 23:27
