I booted into OpenSuse and noticed there was an update, so I installed it. A few minutes after the update had finished (not sure it was anything to do with the update or not) I couldn’t click on things. When I would try, the cursor would change to the four directional errors and all I could do is MOVE the window. I was in TOR trying to click a bookmark but all I could so was drag the window around, same thing in Steam, in Firefox,and the K launcher. I had to boot into Windows to write this post.
I know this isn’t the proper place to report bugs, but I’m hoping someone has a quick fix.
Just to add to that. Normal mode v. desktop mode? Well, you are either doing a “normal boot” or booting in “recovery mode”. In recovery mode you can login to a desktop, if all goes well, but you may be left in a console at the login prompt if it doesn’t.
Excellent news, now I see your edit, and better result. The Lower resolution because Recovery mode used the boot code “nomodeset” that results in the use of a lower level graphics driver (no hardware acceleration, no 3D support).
