Hi, I installed inxi following the instructions here: https://smxi.org/docs/inxi-installation.htm

Ever since I installed, some of my apps don't work. For example, Steam or Monero-gui.

Also my desktop background has a bit of green random marks on it every time I boot up (but if I change desktop background, these marks disappear).

Can anyone point me to something I'm doing wrong in terms of setup?

And what is the "proper" / good way of uninstalling inxi and re-setting the laptop to what it was previously?

Thanks!
Andreas

This is absurd, inxi has nothing to do with your graphics stack. I'm not sure why you posted the sgfxi debugger, that's also not related to inxi. But that is a red flag in a sense, since it indicates you have essentially no idea what you are doing, sgfxi isn't used or required for intel no matter what, so there's zero reason it would exist on your system in the first place. I'm guessing you've done more than you are saying, though you probably did not realize you did more than you are saying, which makes it impossible to help you unravel whatever it is you did.

You may have pulled in some other package at some point, but this issue has nothing to do with inxi. inxi reads your system data, it doesn't create it or alter it.

Given you have an Intel graphics device, it's also not going to be related to non supported hardware or drivers like with nvidia, and in some cases, amd.

There's a corner case possibility that your apt is not setup correctly, and you didn't pay attention when using apt-get install inxi, and you ended up pulling in a ton of recommends and suggests, one of which messed up steam.

But also likely is that a wine package messed up steam.

This has nothing to do with inxi, period, zero. You won't be able to resolve whatever issues you are having until you stop looking in the wrong place for the causes.

Thanks for the clarity! OK, I ran a script at some point where I had to login via root outside of the window manager.

I can't find what this was but somewhere looking for graphics improvements...

Any chance you would know what this script could be? I can't find it and didn't write down what I did.. :/

It's unrealistic to expect this level of psychic ability from anyone you are asking to help you. You are the one who ran 'some script', clearly without having any idea of what you were doing, and that had some result, which you did not find pleasing. The moral of this particular story is know what you are doing and why before doing it, then remember what you did, since nobody else can have any idea of that. My guess is you messed up xorg or xorg configuration or ... well, just guesses. Nothing to do with inxi, as I said.

I investigated some more and have a different question - actually about sgfxi. As this is unrelated to inxi I've opened a new thread instead here: https://techpatterns.com/forums/about2946.html
Thanks!
