Description of problem:
I updated my Fedora 27 desktop via the dnf upgrade path. It downloaded all the needed packages, and got update. When I tried to login (GNOME Xorg), it kept logging me out without even showing the desktop. Tried GNOME Classic and GNOME and all failed. Both LXDE, Openbox work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 28 updated via:
"dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=28"
Not sure about this.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Not sure
I should have been able to log in via GNOME but no.
Crashed out without seeing the GNOME desktop
Right now, logged in via LXDE.
Solved as per this tweet by William Henry:
essentially, to remove/move .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
Once that was done, I could log in.
Just an update to this. I had two GNOME extensions installed: Show IP and Internet Radio. After removing both as per earlier comment, I then tested by adding them one by one. Internet Radio worked OK. Adding Show IP immediately crashed GNOME and I could not log back in. Had to remove the extensions and things were back to normal.
