Hi. How to restore file system all system configuration to basic.
My system it's dead now after installing xmlib2 and uninstall it and I was remount ./dev/shm/ as well
Now system can't start. I see only console with login form.
I was try restore system using GRUB advance settings and system it's freeze after detecting mouse.

Do you mean

libxml2

which is a Python package?

This is likely beyond my paygrade, but I would think the easiest option might be to reinstall Debian.

Welcome to linux.org BTW :)

Hi,

Without a proper save point, that's gonna be hard.

I don't think that could kill your system, but maybe it broke a dependency required by your WM and that made you think everything is broken.

I was remount ./dev/shm/ as well
Depending on the way you did this it should have been fixed after a simple reboot.

Now system can't start. I see only console with login form.
Well your system is started them. You can log in and run some "apt update" commands to fix your desktop environment.

I was try restore system using GRUB advance settings and system it's freeze after detecting mouse.
GRUB won't help you in this case.

For your second screenshot, the one of the debian install, press CTRL ALT F4 and tell us what you see.

But as I said, the easiest way would be to log in the black login window and to do some
Bash:
# apt clean
# apt update
# apt install -f
Make sure you run them as root
