How to Fix a Corrupted GUI after Downgrading Python on Ubuntu?

If you’ve recently downgraded Python on Ubuntu, you may have noticed that your GUI is not functioning properly. Specifically, the login screen may be corrupted or not loading at all, and you may not be able to log in or access your desktop. This is because the downgrade may have caused some dependencies to break, including the lightdm package that manages the display manager.

What is Lightdm ?

Lightdm is a display manager that manages the login screen and desktop environment for Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. It’s responsible for starting the X server, authenticating users, and loading the graphical user interface. If lightdm is not functioning properly, you may not be able to log in or access your desktop. Reinstalling lightdm is a simple and effective solution to fix these issues and restore your system’s GUI.

Checkov a must tool for infra CI

Checkov is a tool that helps developers and operations teams ensure that their infrastructure is secure and compliant with best practices. It does this by automatically scanning infrastructure as code (IaC) and runtime environments for issues that could potentially lead to security vulnerabilities or compliance failures. Checkov works by scanning code written in various IaC languages (such as Terraform, CloudFormation, and ARM templates) and looking for patterns that could indicate security or compliance risks. It can also be integrated into a continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, allowing it to scan code automatically as it is being developed and deployed.
