EDIT: So I ended up getting in over my head in attempt to fix it, so I just reinstalled. It looks like the unexpected shutdown caused files to become corrupt. Oops.
I was trying to launch a game in Dolphin Emulator, and the pc ended up freezing. I did control-alt-f1 then cntrl-alt-f7 to return back to the desktop, and was greeted by a black screen. Not a big deal, this has happened before, so I just power off my computer (with the reset button).
But now I can't boot correctly. When Mint starts, I am shown a terminal, and it gets stuck on "Stopping Samba Auto-Reload Integration". It will just stay there forever.
How do I get it to boot back to the desktop?
I am using Linux Mint (sorry, not sure which version, I think it's the latest)
