  • Could you clarify? Why do you think this? What triggered you to run this command? I might be experiencing a related issue so I'm curious, see: github.com/elementary/greeter/issues/411 Jul 6 at 8:37
  • What happens when you run this without sudo? Jul 6 at 9:34
  • @PeterUithoven I reinstalled elementary (on my macbook) still having issues with graphics drivers. I'm using Intel drivers with Xorg and fans are running all the time. I haven't got the time to get to the bottom of that. Sorry not helpful.
