My laptop had some issues so I restarted it. Before I did, I ran
htop and killed the process which was using the most of my resources, but I can't remember which one what is.
Once I turned my laptop back on, this happened:
As you can see, my sidebar completely disappeared and I have no idea why nor how to take it back.
I already tried purging the
pantheon-files package and installing it again, but that didn't work. It also takes me to the root directory by default instead of my home directory. Running
pantheon-files from the terminal doesn't show anything suspicious.
EDIT: This seems to affect only the current user. I tried logging in as guest and this problem was not present.
