Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

On one hand it's really annoying getting a core dump every five to ten minutes...

On the other hand, GNOME Shell really flies when it's restarted every five to ten minutes.

Regression, bug, or feature? wink

Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

You got it right. That's why it's called stable release...

For me it seems I can minimize the restarts of gnome-shell by resizing the window I am about to close - for me it's double-clicking on he top window bar - and then close it. It's an awful workaround but at least I can work with it for the moment - that is if I am not going quickly and accidentally close a full screened app out of habit...

Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

I guess that got lost in translation, but I consider "who cares about X11" to be part of the issue - certainly not my personal opinion.
(It implies "regression", regression means lousy QM and lousy QM is never a good sign of anything)

I'm having this issue as well. Intel graphics, both xorg and wayland. Thought it was just me. Hope we see a fix soon.

Now here is a full thread of people saying "me too" and bumping the thread (don't do that), yet I see no link to an upstream bug report.

Has anybody bothered looking upstream for a bug, and if there is none opened one? That would probably help far more than "bumping" here.

I disagree that "me too" isn't helpful (it can point out at how widespread problem is), but I do agree with the rest of your post.

It have nothing to do with nvidia drivers, I use AMD/ATI radeon/mesa drivers and have same problem. At first I tought I could easily reproduce it with Dolphin emulator, however, it is too random, but dolphin-emu crashes gnome-shell quite fast (as closing firefox maximized window after visiting youtube for a while for example).

I didn't want to say "me too" is unhelpful, I actually think it is. It just struck me as odd that so many people were involved, yet no upstream report smile

@phw Yeah I agree with that point smile, O usually wait more competent people to do bug reports, and do it myself only if it's specific to me, I guess others follow similar principle wink.

Reverting mutter to earlier version solves the problem for me, or build it with this commit     aea66ddff6fd91edf10499b8fd156e0663f2f271

I've changed the official PKGBUILD for mutter-3.26 and added the patch from bugzilla. It seems to work like a charm:

I just tested your patch and it works! Thanks!
Is it a good idea to report a ticket at bugs.archlinux.org so that maintainers can apply it and rebuild the package?
Can you do it please?

Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

Interesting observation. My work laptop is running openSUSE Tumbleweed and I have not observed this problem on either 3.26.0 or 3.26.1. FWIW changes in mutter package: https://build.opensuse.org/package/view … s?expand=1

Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

Hey everybody,

i have the same issue and it is unbelievable annoying.

Could anybody tell me how to build a package with the fixed mutter version?
I have all dev tools on my system and i have experiences with compiling software from github but i never made any pacman packages before.

Thanks

Re: Gnome 3.26 restarting, when I close any fullscreen app from overview

@JohnD87 You have a link with a PKGBUILD that builds a patched version of mutter just few messages above. As for how to use said PKGBUILD, I suggest consulting Arch Wiki.

@papa33 It's because it doesn't include the latest 3 commits, including the fix yet, just reinstall the old package.

my apologies papa33, tetrox is right, the patch isn't included... yet I currently have mutter 3.26.1+6+g425df31cf-1 running and I don't have this bug anymore.. Weird.
