Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hi guys, with all the fiasco about Gnome 3 going,
might as well pitch in to trouble you guys a wee bit -_-;

My gnome-session didn't crash or anything like that, it just outright
seemingly not starting the gnome-shell. All that is left is on the screen
is my autostart apps and my wallpaper, and the shell never kicks in or
at least doesn't seem like so.

But the weird thing is, since, for some reason a terminal pop-up, even though
it is not on my gnome-session-properties. I typed "gnome-shell --replace" and the
shell kicks in, it's just like it was never been there to begin with. Also my xfce4 session
starts gnome-shell all on it's own and actually succeeds in doing it.

here is my .xsession-errors

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

firstly delete everything from /home/bimozx/.config/autostart

then replace clutter-dev  with clutter

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hi All,

I have the exact same thing happening to me. I can only see my wallpaper and previous running apps (one of which is the gnome-terminal). I can start gnome-shell from a terminal using gnome-shell --replace.

I have clutter installed (no clutter-dev), and my autostart config has 3 applications (Skype/SABNZBD+/Dropbox).

Please let me know what output you'd like to see if you can help? I'll gladly provide any info.

Regards,
Wayne.

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hey waynej4, you probably should start on your .xsession-errors located in your ~/ directory or your
home directory, the solution by wonder worked well for me.

Also try to post any software you install from AUR by typing "pacman -Qm" and try
to check your startup apps on gnome 3 by typing "gnome-session-properties".

@wonder: thanks a lot, guess I really need to start cleaning up things on my end.
Guess it all comes down to proper and careful installation of libs, and I really appreciate
the quick help it's not even 2 hours yet?! Things like this is what makes me want to stay
here.

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hi BimoZX,

Thanks for a quick reply. I've managed to sort it out by renaming the following folders in my home directory to .old_xxxxx:
.config
.gnome2
.gnome2_private
.dbus
.gconf
.gconfd

I logged out and then logged back in and all seemed fine. Not sure which of the above was the cause of the problem and, of course, I have to reconfigure my settings now. But at least it works, and I can copy files back slowly and try work out which are causing the issue.

Thanks for such a quick response.

Regards,
Wayne.

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hmm, since yesterday I'm fumbling around with those settings too. It seems this is not settings related at all (at least not to old package settings), but rather to nautilus' behavior. Just a few minutes ago I've set "view all hidden files" to true in it's settings. It instantly crashed. After a reboot gnome-shell is gone. This is really annoying.
Also there is no taskbar, no menu bar, no nothing in fallback mode!... Is this even fallback mode?

Trying to launch gnome-shell from terminal then gives:

Window manager warning: Screen 0 on display ":0" already has a window manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current window manager.

with replace option:

Window manager warning: Log level 16: Another compositing manager is running on screen 0

Compiz is gone already. What could be causing this issue?

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hello there.

I can confirm this issue. The same thing happened to me yesterday (either gnome-shell or gnome-fallback doesn't work properly, empty GNOME 3 screen with a gnome-terminal window only).
I was investigating it and I realized that it happens when there is a tick in `gnome-session-properties` in second tab (screenshot below) and when you try to re-login.

startupapplicationspref.png

I don't know exactly where this setting is stored but I guess it is indeed in one of following dirs:

  • $HOME/.gconf/

  • $HOME/.gconfd/

  • $HOME/.config/

Just get rid of that setting and hopefully it will be fine.
I hope it will help you.

Regards,
Wojo

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

Hmm, my gnome-session-properties has that running application rememberance ticked, but it's not working at all.

I've deleted LOTS of old trash dirs from my home dir (who says this is all bad, just doesn't recognize the sense behind cleaning up wink ) and worked on the folders waynej4 was mentioning. After renaming it twice (because the problem reoccured), I found out that the .config folder seems to be the root of all evil (at least for me).
Right now the gnome-shell is running smooth. Haven't tried customizing it too much again though. Might crash again after that. Will investigate further.

You should have *no* tick up there (at least that how it was in my case).

Re: Gnome 3 Session Problem, (gnome-shell doesn't start)

That's what I was saying smile
It was not causing any troubles... at least so far. The problems seem to have resided somewhere else in .config folder. I wonder when I'll break the shell again though... not that I'm too curious wink

Yes, I guess the problem resides in .config/gnome-session.

I'm having the same problem with both Arch and Fedora 15 running in VirtualBox. But when I'm using the en_US language instead of my own language (nl_NL / dutch0 everything works fine. If I select my own language only the blank wallpaper is shown.
