MDM doesn't load Desktop only black screen after login and mouse

Postby zombie97 » Sun Feb 26, 2017 5:22 pm

Hi, yesterday I was working with my Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-37-generic x86_64) and I tried to select a different theme, icons. Now when I power on the computer appears a GUI (mdm) and when I log into the system, appear only a black screen and the mouse but it never loads the desktop.. I ran the command "cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager" and the result is: "/usr/sbin/mdm". Now I can only after the black screen type CTRL+ALT+F1 and I have access to the terminal. There is a way to reset the Display Manager or to solve this issue? I already did tried to run "sudo apt-get install cinnamon" but appear errors like "the following packages have unmet dependencies: cinnamon : Depends> cinnamon-session (>= 2.4.0) but it is not going to be installed, libimobiledevice6: depends: libplist 3 (>= 1.11) but it is not going to be installed, libusbmuxd4 : Depends: libplist3 (>= 1.11) but it is not going to be installed, usbmuxd : Depends: libplist3 (>= 1.11) but it is not going to be installed. Please help in order to get my Graphical Interface back again.
