right-click does nothing, the panel shows up but the desktop icons don't though it inverts if I mess with the desktop settings manager, either way tabs/windows aren't responsive or behave abnormally.
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade changed nothing, neither did uninstalling and reinstalling both XFCE and xubuntu https://www.fosslinux.com/44293/how-to-install-and-uninstall-xfce-on-ubuntu.htm
and same goes for deliting ~/.cache/sessions/ and ~/.config/xfce4
rm -R ~/.cache/sessions/*
I've updated to 20.04 almost a year ago and everything worked, so I don't think that's the issue. it used to load fine through recovery mode.
if any more informations are needed, please ask, I'm not very good at this
