[qubes-users] Re: Problème et panne sur mon ordi sous QubesOs

I'll answer in English and not in French because I'm transferring your issue to the user mailing list where the community could help you. You can find more information about how to have support: https://www.qubes-os.org/support/. More recently it's not a "discord" but a "discourse" forum https://forum.qubes-os.org/ where you can post your request too.

Looking briefly to your issue, it seems that your dom0 (XFCE?) window manager might has its config broken. As a first attempt, I would try to clean the XFCE configuration by deleting/moving the folder in your dom0 user ~/.conf/xfce4. I would also ensure having latest updates: "[XXX@dom0 ~]$ sudo qubes-dom0-update"

Best regards,

Hello Yanis,

You can see the xfce log in ~/.xsession-errors.

As Frédéric said, It looks like your window manager (here xfce) failed to launch or never/not launched, so no window decorations, only the content of the window. As only one window available, choose a dom0 terminal, then try to manually launch xfce with the 'startxfce4' command (more help on https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xfce#Starting). If it launches, start by doing your backups (https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/backup-restore/), then try to understand why xfce failed to start automatically.

Note you can also login in a console terminal (text mode, tty), switch with Ctrl-Alt-F2 (going back to graphic mode : Ctrl-Alt-F1).
