[Solved] Unable to boot to desktop

Post by 8trackdj » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:55 am

Been using Mint for several years without issue. Booted successfully this morning and was using everything fine. However, after I installed updates Firefox froze up (was one of the updates), so I rebooted. That is when I had an issue. I can no longer reboot into the desktop. I get to the login screen but when I sign in I get an error, which is "Your session only lasted 10 seconds...". When I go to 'View Details' it says:
    "initctl: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused
      "syndaemon: no process found
        /etc/mdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
          localuser:xxx being added to access control list
            cinnamon-session: error while looading shared libraries: libwayland-egl.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

            I've tried some basic stuff with apt-get (install, clean, install -f) and tried reinstalling libwayland-egl1-mesa, but it didn't help.

            If anyone has any ideas to help out, that would be great.

            Thanks

            Wasn't getting anywhere so I just did a reinstall. I am pretty sure what ended up happening was a misplaced file, but I have no idea how to find it.
