Terminal won't open and user profile is gone from login screen

Hey all, need some help getting terminal up and running again, I can’t seem too open it.

I have followed the instructions on older posts about alt&f2 to use xterm but its not working, I’m lost and on the verge of just re flashing pureos again:( somebody help!! Please: (

What hardware are you talking about? Librem 14? Librem 5? something else?

Did you install and enable an SSH server so that you can SSH in from another computer even if the desktop environment does not come up?

What happens if you press ctl alt f1 or some combination like that on your keyboard. If you’re on a librem 5, can you plug in an USB c to USB a adapter and an external keyboard and try the above?
