gnome-shell logs

Description of problem:

The gnome-shell package is missing xdg-user-dirs-gtk and gstreamer1-plugins-good as dependencies, which breaks the built-in screencaster when GNOME wasn't installed as a part of the GNOME Desktop group (@gnome-desktop).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* Fedora 33
* Both GNOME 3.38 and 40 alpha

How reproducible:

100% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install Fedora Minimal
2. Install gnome-shell and GDM manually via dnf install gnome-shell gdm
3. Attempt to record a screencast using the built-in key combination

Actual results:

The screencast either doesn't begin or hangs until you manually install xdg-user-dirs-gtk and gstreamer1-plugins-good. See the attached logs for the error messages.

Expected results:

The screencast starts.

Additional info:

See the linked gnome-shell issue for more info.
