Can't start gnome 3 session

When I login either from gdm or lxdm the screen sits blue for 1~2min then a message pops up like "Oh no! Something has gone wrong... Please logout and try again" and I can only logout and nothing else.

A couple of days ago I installed arch and started to learn how to use pacman and I managed to install gnome 3 with no trouble, everything running smooth. Then I met the AUR, and the bleeding edge stuff, then I installed packer and this brilliant idea came up: why gnome 3, I want unity! And I started installing things mentioned in the Ayatana wiki page, I always rebooted after installing a few packages to check if everything was going well, but after I install compiz-core-unity-git something went wrong, the problem is that I'm not really sure if it was that package, but things collapsed when I ran a compiz command which I can't remember. I tried uninstalling all the packages I could think of being related to the problem, didn't work. I even uninstalled the whole gnome, gdm and xorg, and installing everything again, didn't work either. Here is what everything.log is saying about the error:

I have hope that somebody has had this issue and that it has a trivial solution which just happend to skip my thoughts.
Seriously I'm considering reinstalling arch from scratch.

Re: Can't start gnome 3 session

Sounds very familiar... smile I got all excited about aur and all the bleeding edge software out there for arch when I first switched and ended up messing my system up in much the same way.


Anyways, for starters you can post the output of

pacman -Qm

here to see if anyone spots something bogus that you've installed from aur.


I'm sure there are those that would disagree with me, but if I were you I would just save the output of

pacman -Q

and reinstall your system from scratch... Also, I don't know if you're using yaourt, but I would advise against it in the beginning since it makes it so easy to install unsupported software... I think it's better to download the package and makepkg it by hand because it makes you think more about what you're doing (at most use something like cower). That's just my opinion though...
