so i am in a pickle rught now , i had power outage while compiling firefox 71.0.beta5 and i get into my system and something doesnt work but that something is really intresting

first of all launching my simpleterminal (st) doesnt work when using i3 shortcut it does nothing so i have to launch it using
Code:
DISPLAY=':0' st

in tty, but X server works and everything lightdm too, i only have those weird zsh errors when i click TAB it duplicates only visually, dont know if you know what i mean

next thing Dmenu doesnt work, so i have to start programs using whisker-menu in my xfce4-panel, also it works when launched using
Code:
DISPLAY=':0' dmenu_run -l 4

from tty2 or 1 , doesnt matter

what could be wrong? anytrhing else works so far, i managed to sucsefully merged @world, now i am recompiling kenrel didnt noticed any disk errors i even tried scanning my drive without errors, why only those 2 things doesnt work ?


also so launching Dmenu from shortcut doesnt work but launching betterlockscreen work using shortcut i am so confuised what those 2 have in common ?

some addidtion stuff some characterare like broken for example the celsius character � it loks like this after power outtage
also here is dmesg

Code:

static char *copyurlcmd[] = { "/bin/sh", "-c",
    "sed 's/.*�~T~B//g' | tr -d '\n' | grep -aEo '(((http|https)://|www\\.)[a-zA-Z0-9.]*[:]?
[a-zA-Z0-9./&%?#=_-]*)|((magnet:\\?xt=urn:btih:)[a-zA-Z0-9]*)' | uniq | sed 's/^www./http:\\
/\\/www\\./g' | dmenu -i -p 'Copy which url?' -l 10 | tr -d '\n' | xclip -selection clipboar
d",

and now i noticed dmenu will launch is used by me simpleterminal script
