Thread: Only backround and mouse visible!

  1. #1

    Default Only backround and mouse visible!

    Hello people,
    I am on openSUSE 13.1 and i was copying some file from one hard disk to another and all of a sudden i saw a black screen with two lines (i didn't get to read them) and now i can only see the backround and the mouse and can't do anything. I don't want shut down my laptop cause i cut and paste the files and i fear they might be corrupt or lost. Any solutions to that?
    Thanks, Leo.

    It sounds as if Xorg crashed.

    See if you can find any logs that might help pinpoint the problem.
