Locked out after update
#1
Just got my Pinephone in the mail. Installed the updates listed and now when I start the phone it shows me the K-gear background and a mouse pointer. I can move the mouse, but that's about it. I can pull up the terminal with a keyboard connected, but unsure how to get back to the GUI.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

This seems to happen a lot with new phones. It's probably easiest to reinstall the OS rather than trying to repair the existing one. This gives you the opportunity to pick a different distro if you want too.

I will give that a shot. Thanks so much!
