Type Battery unavailable

Hi all,

I'm using kde plasma, all for a sudden after restart I'm getting below error and booting the device in Gnome. Even I'm unable to connect the wifi.
I tried timeshift and restore the system to previous version no help. I removed the power from laptop its booting with help of battery.
My current kernal is 5.4.6-2 linux54
Please help.

Error: the current theme can't be loaded due to the error below please select another theme

Try removing and reinstalling your current theme. If that doesn't help try a different theme and see if the problem persists. Themes can sometimes break after a system update.

Hi,
pls share the steps to perform the activity in gnome.
is it possible to reinstall the plasma or KDE 19 without formatting the drive ?

You can make a second user account to run Plasma on but I don't advise it, using a separate user account mitigates the risks but you could still run in to conflicts.

I think it was 4 in the morning when I read your first post so I missed the peculiarities, why is sddm your display manager if you're running gnome? Have you already been trying to mix gnome and kde?

Hi,
I'm have installed and using KDE plasma, because of the error the OS switched automatically to Gnome. I'm not getting options for switch back to KDE and after logging inside its a Gnome GUI. As mentioned earlier I tried Timeshift to previous date it didn't fixed/worked. I searched the community I didn't find and specific post on this issue.
I'm clueless whats happening to my OS.

I don't believe you. You must have done it. The only way Gnome could have gotten on a KDE system is if you put it there.

If you want to confirm this you can post your pacman logs from around the time things went wrong but the solution is going to be to reinstall.

What all logs you want to pull?
Share the steps

cat /var/log/pacman.log

The entries will be dated, copy all the entries beginning from the day before this problem started. Paste it here, highlight the text and click the icon that looks like </> so I can read it easily.

Hi,
Updating the system logs from where the issue started. I'm formatting the system and reinstalling the Manjaro.

I'm not seeing any mention of gnome anywhere.

It's looks like you was running an update and the log abruptly stops, did you power off or something while it was updating? Or was you trying to do something else?

Here at 00:42 am on the 5th

Mainly going through this for my own fascination now

I think the pieces are beginning to fall into place...

Interesting

I can't tell if this was an interrupted update, or if you was trying to uninstall something and removed most of your desktop environment without noticing. I'm leaning towards the latter.

It seems that there may be a fair bit you've forgotten to tell me :grin:

Hi,
I haven't made any major changes, it was normal.

Dude, you uninstalled pretty much your entire desktop environment, I'd call that a major change!
Look at my above post, see all those 'removed' lines? That's KDE. I can't tell what the transaction was you started because you was using pamac, and because you're not telling me.

There is no mention of Gnome in the logs you posted except for a couple of gtk utilities so either it isn't installed or you installed it at an earlier date. If you had a functional desktop when you started this thread there must have been something there but I can only make guesses based on the limited information you've provided.

Best guess, you installed conky and conky manager and for whatever reason pulled in

plasma-sdk (5.17.4.1)

Along with it.

You then uninstalled conky/manager and the plasma-sdk and it took everything else with it.

The solution is to reinstall the packages you removed

I guess you've already reinstalled but I'll give you one last bit of advice. When you uninstall any application, it will often remove the dependencies as well. In the case of a stock application, ie the ones that were there when you installed your os, you're liable to remove core parts of the system resulting in situations like this. Keep that in mind when removing software in the future.

Hopefully you learn something from this, It's certainly been educational for me!

Over and out!
