For the most part yes, it has been working for some time. Only (Unity) indicators are really causing trouble.

is something like xfce+gala or lxde+gala usable?

Probably, the pantheon components are rather modular. If you are comfortable putting together your own desktop session, you could try with lxpanel or xfce-panel in place of wingpanel.

Doesn' t work for me. Installing gala-bzr and doing gala --replace enters the desktop into a window manager full of bugs with no window decorations, not effects, nothing.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Thank you to whoever is working on Pantheon on Arch, definitely the perfect dream machine imo.

Been using Freya 0.3 Beta 1 since it was released in August daily on 5 pcs and it has a nightmare of a time with nvidia drivers, #1 problem with eOS was stale applications as 0.2 Luna had applications released in 2012.

Gonna give it a go based on that video on youtube, its been a while since I've been on Arch, rolling release here I come! smile

I don't use gala much, but bzr can be broken sometimes. How do you start your pantheon session? Do you use a session manager like gdm or lightdm, or are you starting X another way?

Ignore if you already know this: gala (pantheon), openbox (lxde), xfwm4 (xfce), and compiz (unity) are incompatible because they are all window managers. Theoretically, running `windowmanager --replace` in an active xsession should kill the current one and load whatever you've asked for, but in practice this often crashes, scrambles, or otherwise breaks the desktop.

The most convenient way to start a pantheon desktop variant is to use a session manager like lightdm and make custom desktop sessions, since Pantheon itself is intended as a gnome-session derivative.

Examples:
/usr/share/xsessions/pantheon*.desktop
pantheon.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Pantheon
Comment=This session provides elementary experience
Exec=/usr/bin/pantheon-session
TryExec=wingpanel
Icon=
Type=Application

pantheon-compiz.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Pantheon 3D
Comment=This session provides elementary-3d experience
Exec=/usr/bin/pantheon-session-qq 3d
TryExec=compiz
Icon=compiz
Type=Application

/usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/pantheon*.session
pantheon.session

[GNOME Session]
Name=Pantheon
RequiredComponents=gala;
FallbackSession=openbox
DesktopName=Pantheon
Hidden=True

pantheon-compiz.session

[GNOME Session]
Name=Pantheon
RequiredComponents=compiz;

Yes, I tried executing gala --replace at the start of the session, but it gave me an error. I just installed lightdm and I'm going to try that, but I didn't understand how it works.
I have to create a file .desktop in /usr/share/xsessions/, but what do I put in it ? I want it to be xfce with gala as the window manager.
Thank you very much for your help.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

The pantheon session watchdog, cerbere, runs the DE components.

Change it's configuration in dconf-editor (or your preferred gsettings editor)

default: org.pantheon.cerbere.monitored-processes

['wingpanel', 'plank', 'slingshot-launcher --silent']

*change to:

['xfce4-panel']

* does this cover both your upper panel and your launcher from xfce? do you want to swap the the launcher with plank?

Then log in to a Pantheon session (it won't be necessary to make new session files, but that can be done later if this works.)

Or, using the xfce session, put "gala" in /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

I wasn't able to get Pantheon to run past the frozen black wallpaper where Plank & the top panel showed up so I settled on a heavily modded Gnome 3.

Plank and wingpanel appear but are not usable and the background is flat black?

Which versions did you install (or "where did you install from")?

There was a problem like this with the cursor plugin of gnome-settings-daemon, but I thought it had been fixed.

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Pantheon Shell doesn't work right for me on Arch sad I'm using GTK/GNOME 3.14 and I've tried both the packages from alucruyd's repo as well as the AUR packages. I've installed all the necessary packages and when I choose Pantheon in GDM 3.14 as the session, it shows me Wingpanel and Plank and my background like you'd expect (except that Wingpanel has no indicators). But when I want to click something, I get a "Something has gone wrong. System can't recover. LOG OUT" message. Happens every time. It's unusable like this sad How can I get it to work?

Edit: I suspect Gala is the culprit here. It gives a segmentation fault when running it from the terminal with --replace

Is this what's been killing gala lately?

This happens sometimes. Gnome and Pantheon development are out of sync. Is gala looking for a key that was removed from the ever-shrinking gsd? Is gsd installed at all (it should be, as a dependency of gala, unless the pantheon devs plan to fork it like Canonical did).

::EDIT::

Assuming the key was deprecated, this could be fixed by locating the code in gala that checks this key and commenting that out.

::EDIT Again::

This kind of problem s noticable on Arch because Elementary is being built not only on, but in Ubuntu. Should pantheon depend on unity-settings-daemon?

Not sure what has changed but Pantheon Shell didn't crash today. But it's very unusable though. Plank isn't working and the interface is very, very laggy sad

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

i experience an issue when i try pressing super + w repetitively it crashes the pantheon de on my computer. it just eventually gives me the "oh no something has gone wrong message" forcing me to logout. super + w is what i have set to see all the windows open on my computer, it doesn't even do that. super + a gives me a view of all open windows on my main workspace but i am unable to select the one i want. this problem is driving me nuts. i loved having pantheon on arch but this makes it pretty worthless for me.

UPDATE: i just figured something out. i had toggle on all workspaces and windows overview both set to super + W. i have noticed it is whatever i set toggle on all workspaces. i decided to disable toggle on all workspace because no matter what that crashes my pantheon de. at least i am able to use the windows overview and show all windows now.

i still hate to complain but i use avant windows navigator rather than plank. one of the launchers still crashes my system in the same fashion. specifically file browser launcher. i suppose for now i shall just avoid using that launcher in avant windows navigator. still something buggy going on there. i am at least able to use the pantheon de again.

i apologize as i know this kind of sloppily written... but it is 7:30 AM here and i am tired goodnight all!

You may not have to log out; this is merely gnome-session's opinion.

Your desktop may be partially functional under this vague death shroud. Switch to a tty, kill it, and switch back to X.

ctrl+alt+f2

killall gnome-session-failed

ctrl+alt+f1

This reminds me that we might want to examine the gnome side of Pantheon.

There was a problem like this with the cursor plugin of gnome-settings-daemon, but I thought it had been fixed.

I installed all bzr versions.

The situation was that I was doing a new install without any other Desktop Shell, since then I completely nuked the install with the black screen, installed Gnome first and then installed Pantheon second.

I was following instructions from this youtube video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5flWWg6Bv0

So I wrote a guide to setup & configure Arch, Pantheon is Step 5 after Step 4 Gnome now.
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cKC … sp=sharing

Right now Wingpanel won't launch so Pantheon Session is pretty much useless, I'm instead currently running Plank and Slingshot in a heavily configured Gnome 3 Session to emulate Pantheon

If this got pantheon working better, it sounds like some gnome dependencies might be missing from the pantheon packages (perhaps packages that are default in Ubuntu).

What's up with wingpanel? any output when run from a terminal?

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Still crashes for me sad And if I kill gnome-session-failed, then I end up with a laggy and glitchy desktop.

Are my posts showing up in this topic or what? It's not that I'm craving for attention or anything but my posts are the only ones getting skipped...

Gnome-session puts up the white screen of death because it believes your desktop is unusable since one or more of the components crashed. This true to some degree, but I don't understand why it has to put the big white screen on top of everything else and not even give any meaningful information (like "window manager has crashed" or "panel has crashed").

Killing gnome-session-failed won't fully recover the desktop, but it may help you debug what's died (by letting you interact with whatever, if anything, is left).

Speaking of what died, I tried gala myself and yeah, segfaults.

coredumpctl had this to say about it:

Anyone else experiencing gala crashes want to check their coredumps?

If it's always crashing in the same place, maybe we have a bug between gala and glib2.

The latest version of glib2 in Elementary OS Luna is 2.32.4 and in Isis it's 2.40.2--both with ubuntu patches--but Arch uses 2.42.1.

::EDIT:: Reported upstream although it seems this isn't the only crash bug killing gala

Re: Pantheon Shell on Archlinux

Hi all!

I want to share with you my last experience with Pantheon in Arch (I have Antergos installed).

I love this desktop-environment and I work hard to have it ussable. I installed Pantheon in Arch in 20 computers (installing gnome first, the default desktop-environment in Antergos). 4 are in my home, and 16 is installed in my friends computers. No problem at all (they never had Linux installed in their systems). But I had to do some tricks to do it.

First: in a clean install, gala make me problems minimizing and maximizing windows. I solved this problem disabling animations of gala with dconf-editor. This is the way:

run "dconf-editor"

look the schema:

org.pantheon.desktop.gala.animations

...and disable this. This make me the desktop fully ussable.

The second problem is "wingpanel". Everything work well unless some indicators from some applications, like dropbox, epiphany, transmission, etc...

I tried to solve this a lot of times with no results.

One day I installed "budgie-desktop-git". This desktop environmet uses gtk3 and vala. Is very similar to gnome and pantheon, like a little brother of them.

Budgie-desktop use budgie-panel, very similar to wingpanel and with more functions. Don't use indicators, and work perfectly.

Well. I installed "switchboard-plug-elementary-tweaks-bzr" to swap wingpanel with budgie-panel, and voila! I have a fully functional pantheon right now.

For me I have only two cosmetics issues. The fisical volumen button never work (is not a problem changing the volumen directly in the panel), and the print-screen button in my keyboard dont work too. I have to use the screen-shot icon from the menu (is better, have more functions).

Thanks to all for this amazing work! We are all very happy with this stable and fast desktop!

Cheers!!!

You need gnome-fallback-media-keys-helper from gnome-settings-daemon-compat.

You'll need to add this startup:
/etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-fallback-media-keys-helper-pantheon.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Media keys
Exec=/usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon/gnome-fallback-media-keys-helper
Icon=multimedia
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=
NoDisplay=true
OnlyShowIn=Pantheon;
X-GNOME-Autostart-Notify=true

Also, have you tried super-wingpanel?

At first I couldn't believe this, but indeed they have implemented a plugin to use the legacy x11 system tray. (Un)fortunately, replacing this with appindicator support is on their to-do list...

Thanks, thanks, thanks!!!

Thank you so much, Quequotion. My system is complete right now!!! I'm so so happy!!!

I tried with your compilation of super-wingpanel, but the last time I had the same troubles with indicators as with wingpanel. I will try again. But I like so much this budgie-panel, with taskbar and no indicators (only tray). And the Antergos theme doesn's work very well with super-wingpanel. Budgie-panel allows me to don't use Ubuntu staff.

Thanks again for your hard work, and sorry about my bad english.

Best regards!
