My story is like this:
- opened “setting“, changed keyboard input from “ibus” into “fcitx“
- in a terminal, installed google pinyin for ubuntu by:
$sudo apt-get install fcitx-googlepinyin
- restarted the laptop.
- At the login page, I input password to login. Then, forever black screen, desktop failed to load.
Then, I tried to solve the problem by uninstalling fcitx-googlepinyin by the following:
s1. keyboard ctrl+alt+F3, enter the terminal version of the system.
s2. tried the following three ways of removing fcitx-googlepinyin, together with a restart, and failed.
*$sudo apt-get remove fcitx-googlepinyin* *$sudo apt-get remove --autoremove fcitx-googlepinyin* *$sudo apt-get autoremove --purge fcitx-googlepinyin*
May I ask, do you know how could I enter the normal desktop of the ubuntu? How could one save all the user files to portable storage from the terminal? After that, one can safely re-install the system. Thank you.
