Description of problem:
This is another bug related to gnome-session (worst part of gnome).
Aftech chnging in my laptop Monitor Type to Generic LCD 1024x768 in
system-config-display, logout, then login gnome does not load. I see
only the bockground colour of my session after typing password in gdm.
Removeing ~/.gnome2/session does not help.
The only thing that helps is removing/renaming whole ~/.gnome2 directory.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.CHnge monitor type in system-config-display
2.Logout form gnome
Actual Results: Blank screen in background color of gnome session
Expected Results: Working gnome
after daily upgrade Gnome does not start. Even deleting whole
~/.gnome2 direstory does not help. I have to use KDE, the only working WM.
I did some testing.
The effects of strace form "failsafe session" as well as from "startx"
from runlevel 3 and content of .gnome2 directory are at:
The problem started when I was logout from gnome with savine session
enabed and one crashed gnome application somewhere in background. I
killed it before, but when logging out I saw contours of some window.
Every other windows were closed before logout so I was sure I'm
saveing clean session (i.e. with no running apps).
Now, after one login to KDE, logout from KDE i can normally login to
Gnome? What is going on? How? Magic?
Has KDE hidden scripts for gnome-session fixing:)
