UNSOLVED Mirror Squashed, partially locked out
I ran the update last week, and after the restart I noticed that my PIR sensor wasn’t working. I looked and the python script I used was missing from the MM folder, so i copied it back there, and also onto the main file, because I couldn’t remember where it went. After a restart, Igot a mirror that looked like this:
For some reason, all the text is squished up into a smaller area. When I tried to sort out what happened, I couldn’t use ctrl + alt +delete or any other hotkey shortcuts to get to the file browser or terminal to try and figure out what went wrong. Through a lot of trial and error, I was able to figure out that alt+F2 worked, and that I could pull up a web browser from there to get to my files to at least look at it, though I can’t move, edit, or delete anything. I still can’t get to the normal file browser or the terminal. I tried to zoom out, and that just makes the text smaller but the window size doesn’t change. The web browser underneath is the proper size and everything looks fine there. I can’t seem to pull any log flies, and when I restart it comes back to this. I have to cut power to restart, since ctrl+alt+delete doesn’t work.
Any ideas on how to fix, or am I looking at a rebuild? Happy to provide whatever other data I can.
@cyric can u ssh into the machine?
how about alt-tab to cycle thru the windows?
alt-spacebar should bring up the context menu of the current window so u can minimize it
do u normally rotator mm window?
if u can get in to the console
ctrl-alt-t to open a terminal window
I’m not able to ssh into the machine, but I can VNC into it. I can minimize the window, but it just goes black and gives me an error message about about a wiki page it can’t GET. Currently, it says "Cannot GET /wiki/Los_Angeles_Lakers. I can only assume this has to do with a wikipedia of the day module I have installed.
I normally have it rotated due to how it hangs on my wall.
I got the web browser up by using alt+F2 and going to help -> documentation. I can’t get into a terminal or anything else.
Thanks for the help, but I just went ahead and reloaded it.
