Restore External Monitor and Bluetooth Keyboard After Reinstalling the Desktop

I lost the Zorin GUI desktop when I tried to eliminate the keyring password on the Edge browser. Through the help of person in this forum, I was able to restore the desktop, however, I can't see the external monitor nor does my Bluetooth external keyboard work anymore. Both used to. I'm using Zorin 16.3 Core.

If I try the command:

sudo apt remove --purge gnome-keyring

Here is the output the terminal gives:

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  bogofilter bogofilter-bdb bogofilter-common evolution-common gir1.2-gck-1 gir1.2-gcr-3
  gir1.2-gdm-1.0 gir1.2-gnomebluetooth-1.0 gir1.2-graphene-1.0 gir1.2-mutter-7 gir1.2-rsvg-2.0

  libtelepathy-glib0 libvncserver1 libytnef0 mutter-common p11-kit p11-kit-modules pipewire
  pipewire-bin switcheroo-control touchegg xwayland
Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove them.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  chrome-gnome-shell evolution evolution-data-server evolution-ews evolution-plugin-bogofilter
  evolution-plugin-pstimport evolution-plugins evolution-rss gdm3 github-desktop gnome-keyring
  gnome-remote-desktop gnome-shell gnome-shell-extension-prefs

  gnome-shell-extension-zorin-window-move-effect gnome-shell-extensions
  gnome-shell-extensions-zorin-desktop seahorse zorin-appearance-layouts-shell-core
  zorin-desktop-session

As you can see, it will remove seahorse and all of the Zorin OS Desktop environment.
We also see that it renders a large number of libraries defunct including:

libpipewire-0.3-0 libpipewire-0.3-modules libpst4 libpugixml1v5 libspa-0.2-modules
  libtelepathy-glib0 libvncserver1 libytnef0 mutter-common p11-kit p11-kit-modules pipewire
  pipewire-bin switcheroo-control touchegg xwayland

I do not know if you ran autoremove or not.

You might try

sudo apt install --reinstall bogofilter bogofilter-bdb bogofilter-common evolution-common gir1.2-gck-1 gir1.2-gcr-3 gir1.2-gdm-1.0 gir1.2-gnomebluetooth-1.0 gir1.2-graphene-1.0 gir1.2-mutter-7 gir1.2-rsvg-2.0 gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 gnome-keyring-pkcs11 gnome-shell-common gstreamer1.0-pipewire libchamplain-0.12-0 libchamplain-gtk-0.12-0 libebackend-1.2-10 libebook-1.2-20 libebook-contacts-1.2-3 libedata-book-1.2-26 libedata-cal-2.0-1 libedataserverui-1.2-2 libevolution libgdm1 libgnome-autoar-gtk-0-0 libhandy-0.0-0 libmutter-7-0 libphonenumber7 libpipewire-0.3-0 libpipewire-0.3-modules libpst4 libpugixml1v5 libspa-0.2-modules libtelepathy-glib0 libvncserver1 libytnef0 mutter-common p11-kit p11-kit-modules pipewire pipewire-bin switcheroo-control touchegg xwayland

Reboot and test. If still no good after that, please relay the terminal output for

sudo lshw -C video

and

sudo lshw -C network

Hi Aravisian,

I ran sudo apt autoremove and the sudo apt install --reinstall bogofilter...

The Bluetooth keyboard works now, but I'm still not seeing an option for an external monitor on the Settings-> Displays.

I have Zorin installed on an old MacBook Pro (2012). The external monitor is connected via the Display Port and a converter to an HDMI cable.

Please show this output.

Bluetooth keyboard works now, but I still have the problem with no 2nd monitor detected.

Are you using Intel integrated card with Nvidia Dedicated?
If you do have Nvidia, please run in terminal:

sudo apt remove --purge '^nvidia-.*'

sudo apt update && sudo ubuntu-drivers install

Launch Software & Updates > `Additional Drivers tab and select the Nvidia Driver you wish to use.

Reboot once it is done loading to test.

I don't know whether I have dedicated Nvidia. I'll try the commands that you suggest. Couldn't hurt.

I don't think I have dedicated Nvidia. I ran the suggested remove command, and received the following output:
sudo apt remove --purge '^nvidia-,'

Ok, let's try

sudo apt install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel linux-generic-hwe-20.04

Once done, reboot and test...

Thanks for your help, but I decided to reinstall Zorin. Everything is back to the way it should be.

This shows that upgrading, whether it be point versions or distro version, is not always going to work. Sometimes a reinstall is necessary.

For the most part, point version upgrades will not introduce issues to your system. But if enough is changed, and as tempermental as some drivers are, an upgrade does have the potential to introduce issues that will have someone chasing their tail.

Whether liked or not, sometimes a fresh reinstall of the new version is the only way to resolve some issues.

Keep this in mind as we near the release of 17. Backup often and it will be less of an issue to reinstall if necessary in the future.

Thanks for the advice.
