Hello, this is my very first question and I was forced to ask it because I cant find a solution. Let me describe the problem.
Today I decided to build from source wireshark. I am not an experienced linux user so it took me a long. I had to install different dependencies like Glib, Qt5 etc. I executed
but there were some errors. Then I decided to quit the process. I updated and upgraded the system through
Following that, I tried to spend some time on facebook but firefox started showing tab errors. Specifically, "Gah, your tab just crashed". So I restarted my laptop and the disaster came real. I logged in and noticed that my background and my theme was changed back to default. Also, all the desktop icons were aligned on the left side and there were 2 new mount volumes, "file system root" and "home". I cannot change anything. I created a test user through terminal but the problem remains. A weird thing is that I can see my background when I type my password in order to login. But after the login process the desktop background is the default one. I also noticed that some system settings are not preserved after reboot. For example, the "show hidden files" setting. Do you have any idea about that problem? Is it an update issue or I did the damage?
Thank you in advance.
