Ardour won't start anymore

Hi everyone.
I’ using ardour 6.0.3 on AV linux 2020. It worked fine until i opened plug in in my track (don’t remember exactly the name of the effect but it was an LV2 reverb) and ardour crashed.

Now if i try to open ardour again it starts but i can’t see anything. I remove and re-installed but nothing change.

As you can see now my ardour starts with this different window

but after the scan for plug in it simply disappear and i can’t find it in any workspace, and neither in taskmaanger activity.

Possibly Ardour’s config or preferences got messed up in the crash?

Perhaps try to move it out of the way and start over:

mv ~/.config/ardour6/  ~/.config/ardour6.old

It also looks like some color files cannot be loaded. Could you start Ardour from a terminal-window and post the output that’s shown there?

wow thank you very much, it works!

If it can be useful here is the result of the terminal if i try to open ardour in it:
