[SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

Hi all,

Just upgraded my system to the latest 3.14 release and now everything is broken. GDM will not start and I cannot start a GNOME session directly via startx.

Is anyone else having this issue?

This is on an Intel Haswell based system, by the way.

journalctl shows the following:

Oct 16 09:44:43 minime gnome-session[708]: Unrecoverable failure in required component gnome-shell.desktop

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

What's your pacman.conf? Is gnome-unstable at the very top? Is the testing repo enabled as well? Gnome is now in extra.

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

I have neither the testing nor the gnome-unstable repos enabled.

pacman.conf:

# See the pacman.conf(5) manpage for option and repository directives

# NOTE: You must run `pacman-key --init` before first using pacman; the local

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

Updated the post title to be less ambiguous, sorry about that.

Did a simple pacman -Syu after seeing the packages were released to extra. After that, rebooted, and now all I have is a black screen.

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

You have to use the unpatched ones because the patched ones are not updated all yet.

pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig

Or wait until all are updated. wink

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

And problem solved, thanks! Reverting back to the standard font packages fixed the issue.

Maybe I won't need the patched packages anymore, anyway.

EDIT: Nvm, i switched mirrors, did pacman -Syu again, some more updates happened and it worked.
Thank you all for helping on ubuntu fonts rendering!!

I use the infinality repo for fontconfig etc, and didn't have any problem upgrading.

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

Hi, I also get a `Unrecoverable failure in required component gnome-shell.desktop' when starting gnome via startx. GNOME only says `Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and...'. A `pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig' does not work since all these packages are up to date (I don't use freetype2-ubuntu). Am I doing something wrong?

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

I also get an error when trying to start a GNOME session after the upgrade. I removed my infinality patched freetype2 and fontconfig and installed the latest ones, with no change. using SLiM as my login manager because GDM isn't compatible with the Catalyst graphics drivers.

this is most of the output of journalctl | grep gnome:

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

Thank you very, very much! I had the infinality-bundle installed and I'm using cinnamon. The upgrade broke my system, too.
The command...

pacman -S --asdeps freetype2 cairo fontconfig

... solved my problems, too.
The only sad thing is, that I now have weird font rendering again. sad

Re: [SOLVED][GNOME] 3.14 update broken

@Kopfweh et al. The entire ultimate collection was available in the repository a day before Gnome 3.14 appeared in [extra]. As I was aware that Gtk3 was going to be upgraded, I installed Gnome and tested it with the new freetype and cairo and didn't observe any crashes, hang-ups or anything: Gnome 3.14 looked awesome and it was stable (and yes, Xorg logs and others were clean). That's why I believe the upgrade--on my side at least--was safe: otherwise I wouldn't have pushed it to the repo.

Speaking of cairo-ubuntu: the library won't build with Ubuntu patches any more as the stock library comes with most fixes previously available only in third party patches. (I can tell  nothing about freetype2-ubuntu since I don't use it.) On the other hand, cairo-infinality-ultimate is exactly what Gnome 3.14 in Arch needs: it isn't patched with anything that might break the DE or render it unusable. Ergo: ultimate libraries should work for you, too.
