• no gnome panel on new install?

    I’ve decided to move my system from budgie back to gnome. I did a fresh install (with proprietary drivers, and preserving my home partition), setup gdm, and blacklisted nouveau module (it’s incompatible with my gpu). When I rebooted, gdm came up, and after logging in, my startup applications came up, but no wallpaper or gnome panels (the top bar with clock/settings/power/etc…). Thankfully one of my startup applications is a terminal window, but I don’t know where to start to try to resolve this. Thoughts?
    My system: Lenovo Thinkstation p510

  • i would bet on config files inside home… or permissions issue

    you can provid ejournal directly after log in to gnome:

    journalctl --since "5 minutes ago" | curl -F 'f:1=<-' ix.io

    this will automatic pastebin it and gives out a link / url to the pastebin with the journal…

  • Huh, that’s a neat trick. Here’s the resulting pastebin link:

    a lot of failings and errors… i would move configs out of the way, restart gnome and put only that ones back you really need like for email or so…

    mkdir ~/oldconfigs
    mv ~/.config ~/oldconfigs/ 

    then you will have a new folder named oldconfigs with all configs inside, so you can put back what you need after logout login to GNOME again…

  • So, I tried that, and the problem persisted. Ultimately, I feel that your suspicion is correct, that there’s something in my home directory that’s causing issues. But this is a system that I need for work, so I will get it back up with budgie as a temporary measure, and then prepare it for a full nuke&pave (backing up documents/vms/etc…) for getting gnome back.
    Thanks for your help!

  • there are more configs/settings keys e.t.c. inside home… so you can also create a new user to check, what will give you default settings from Antergos.

  • and as a tip it is better to rename old users home directory to something different from new user name on reinstall and keep the home. then you can replace only needed configs to newly created homedirectory of the new user from new install after initial boot.
