Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

I recently updated all Gnome packages to 3.18 via testing.

Now Gnome and Gdm won't start. Both only show a black screen with a white do in the upper-left corner. I can move my cursor though.


I already tried downgrading the whole gnome and gnome-extra groups to 3.16 and I tried changing my driver. I am using Catalyst-total from the AUR.


XFCE and Lightdm are working fully.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

check journal logs for error messages.

If you enabled [testing], and gnome/X still doesn't start after you downgraded to 3.16. The issue could be caused by something else from testing repo that got updated.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

Hi, sorry for the title, I hope can you help me solving the issue or at least to choose a better title.
After updating GNOME to 3.18 when I put my username and password in GDM and I press enter the screen is stuck at grey GDM background and I can only move the mouse.
If I press Ctrl+Alt+F2 I can reach the shell and use the computer normally.
How can I solve this?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

I am unable to login after upgrading to Gnome 3.18. After rebooting, I can see the login manager (GDM), enter my password and it tried to login for about 1-2 seconds before showing the login screen again. It seems very similar to this forum post .

Output of journalctl -e -u gdm

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

Have you tried disabling wayland on GDM?

uncomment the WaylandEnable=false line in /etc/gdm/custom.conf

im using a kernel from the aur and gdm 3.18 wouldn't let me log in until i uncommented it.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

The issue got fixed! I tried re-upgrading about an hour after downgrading my packages to 3.16, and on running sudo pacman -Syu it downloaded an additional new package glib2 that gnome depends on and then everything started working magically smile. I guess I needed to be patient before I started downloading such a hot update. I did not have to resort to any hacks like disabling wayland or any other tweaks.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

Disabling wayland doesn't help nor does reinstalling glib2 (I already had that). Any clues except for downgrading everything?

If you have that issue with the gray screen after entering a password, hit Escape key and it'll continue to log in.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

Hello, after updating from GNOME 3.16 to GNOME 3.18 I can't login into my desktop like always anymore. After entering the login password and pressing the sign-in button, gnome-shell won't start as expected. However after pressing the Ctrl+Alt+F2 key combo, my desktop appears after a few seconds; and there is also something strange:
taskmanager.png

There are gnome-session, gnome-settings-daemon, ... process open with gdm and my username. (And what's wrong with the big blank space up there?)

I tried using LXDM, and it works as expected, and gnome-settings-daemon, etc process will only show up as my username.

I also tried reinstalling the gdk-pixbuf2 and gdm packages, and trying to login as a new user, but the issue still persists. I'm using nvidia 355.11 drivers from official repos.

Thanks!

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

That login bug might only be for NVIDIA driver and that's why it's wasn't noticed by the developers. It seems you can just hit Escape instead of Ctrl-Alt-F2.

That blank space in your screenshot is fixed in the 3.18.0.1 version of the program so just needs waiting for the update of the package. It's the package "gnome-system-monitor" if you want to tweak its PKGBUILD yourself.

I think that gdm + your own user weirdness was already like this with 3.16. The gdm user session is kept running and your user gets started on another tty when you log in.

Temporary workaround till fix: enable GDM autologin

I'am having the same problem. I'm using unofficial catalyst repo 'thanks to Violo' and stable repo's of Arch. Fresh install of arch and gnome. Tried to downgrade lts kernel from 4.1.10 to 4.1.8 but it didn't help. With gdm or startx blank black screen, mouse working and whites dots...

I have the same problem, except I'm upgrading from a working 3.16 installation. I'm using Catalyst stable and a lts kernel; if I login trough lightdm, the screen remains in black with a white dot in the upper left corner. If I use GDM, well... I get no login screen, but a plain black screen instead -without the white dot-.

I have tried the autologin trick to no avail.

PS: using the Radeon opensource driver made the trick in my case. I guess it's time to ditch the Catalyst one for a good time; less inconvenience.

Re: Gnome-Shell/GDM not working after update to 3.18

The upgrade to gnome 3.18 broke gdm/login. The login gets stuck in tty1 (gdm) and I either have to press escape or switch to tty2 manualy.

This is on a desktop with nvidia geforce 660. Worked like a charm before with 3.16. I've downgraded but am posting this as warning to people with similar setup.

Found this bug on the gnome side: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754814
