@vasileios Uh OH Something went really wrong.
I installed Python3.10 on My Linux mint. Followed instructions I found. at this link. How to Install Python 3.10 on Linux Mint 20 - LinuxCapable
I started at Option 1 and went as far as the verify point. I did not install anything below that .
All was good.
Then I found more info about Python3 not compatible with Linux mint because of other versions of Python that run a lot of programs in Mint. This article said to run check list to see what they were because you could harm the whole Linux ( true or false?)if you replaced the pre installed default Python running programs in Mint. I got curious…and did a few steps that were shown to see what the default was and Python 3.10 came up . Ran a check that showed which programs are run by earlier versions of Python. Many were Python 3.8 . I changed nothing there.
Joggled between python 3.10 and 3.8 as the instructions showed how to use python3.10 without disturbing mint installed one. Then terminal stopped working and everything stopped working. I rebooted and now nothing but basic files are working.
The reboot log in is normal but when it loads after password all I get is a black screen desktop with my desktop file icons. The files work but simplistically and with few options. It seems like its in a recovery mode of some sort? There is no internet, no browser capabilities. No tabs or buttons to click for them. And no terminal will come up not even by using the keyboard. ?? is this fixable? did I scramble the program by switching back and forth ??? and BOO on my curiosity.
I am not able to relocate the instructions of the last part I did since I am searching on my windows computer without my brave bookmarks.
