Issues with 'sway: error while loading shared libraries: libopenh264.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory' #4633
Can someone suggest a debug/investigation process for an error of:
I just rebooted and my sway session failed and it silently restarts the login process. I can logon with a separate .i3 session, but I really want my sway session back, please.
I'm on X1 carbon thinkpad (3rd gen).

Trying to remove and reinstall

Fixing it manually with:

Leaving this open, in case there is a possible/reasonable explanation.
Feel free to close otherwise!
