Total Qubes/Linux newb here. Trying to move away from Apple.
I received my new Qubes-certified hardware from NitroKey yesterday. Booted it up. Updated it. I figured out how to get past the initial startup problems post update and got back to my home screen with Qubes updated.
The problem is that now the computer won’t let me click on anything (right or left click) on the home screen. I can hover my cursor over some of the homescreen buttons and will get popup info, but the system won’t let me click anything. It’s like the OS is frozen but the cursor still moves.
I’ve restarted a bunch of times and the same situation happens. Several times I’m able to do ONE THING–like bring up the qubes manager or bring up a firefox window. But then I’m not allowed to do anything else outside that one task… for example I can navigate inside the browser but can’t close out the firefox browser qube or click on anything outside that qube. The entire computer is “stuck” until I restart it. Several times the home screen won’t respond to any actions I take.
Is there something that I toggled during the update process that would royally mess up my brand new computer so bad that I can’t even use it?
I’m about to give up on Qubes because I can’t even get started.
