• Gnome startup problem


    Hi,

    I did a fresh installation off the current autobuild image. I have had lots of trouble getting any build to work but that one finally went through. However, every time I start up gnome, I am presented with a completely white background instead of my wallpaper. Also, my extensions are disabled, even though they were enabled. I haven’t changed anything, so i’m not sure what is going on.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Brian

  • Hi,

    Could you verifiy that the dir mentioned here: [http://forum.antergos.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1271&hilit=+%2Fusr%2Fshare%2Fgnome+shell#p4551][0]">viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1271&hilit=+%2Fusr%2Fshare%2Fgnome+shell#p4551 exists on your system?

    Also post the contents of /etc/default/grub and list your system specs.

    Best Regards,

  • creating that folder fixed the wallpaper issue, but my extensions (i only have caffeine at the moment) are not starting automatically. I wonder if it is just that extension tho.

    here is my grub

    GRUB\_DEFAULT=0  
    GRUB\_TIMEOUT=5  
    GRUB\_DISTRIBUTOR="Arch"  
    GRUB\_CMDLINE\_LINUX\_DEFAULT="quiet"  
    GRUB\_CMDLINE\_LINUX=""  
      
    \# Preload both GPT and MBR modules so that they are not missed  
    GRUB\_PRELOAD\_MODULES="part\_gpt part\_msdos"  
      
    \# Uncomment to enable Hidden Menu, and optionally hide the timeout count  
    \#GRUB\_HIDDEN\_TIMEOUT=5  
    \#GRUB\_HIDDEN\_TIMEOUT\_QUIET=true  
      
    \# Uncomment to use basic console  
    GRUB\_TERMINAL\_INPUT=console  
      
    \# Uncomment to disable graphical terminal  
    \#GRUB\_TERMINAL\_OUTPUT=console  
      
    \# The resolution used on graphical terminal  
    \# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE  
    \# you can see them in real GRUB with the command \`vbeinfo'  
    GRUB\_GFXMODE=auto  
      
    \# Uncomment to allow the kernel use the same resolution used by grub  
    GRUB\_GFXPAYLOAD\_LINUX=keep  
      
    \# Uncomment if you want GRUB to pass to the Linux kernel the old parameter   
    \# format "root=/dev/xxx" instead of "root=/dev/disk/by-uuid/xxx"   
    \#GRUB\_DISABLE\_LINUX\_UUID=true  
      
    \# Uncomment to disable generation of recovery mode menu entries  
    GRUB\_DISABLE\_RECOVERY=true  
      
    \# Uncomment and set to the desired menu colors. Used by normal and wallpaper   
    \# modes only. Entries specified as foreground/background.  
    \#GRUB\_COLOR\_NORMAL="light-blue/black"  
    \#GRUB\_COLOR\_HIGHLIGHT="light-cyan/blue"  
      
    \# Uncomment one of them for the gfx desired, a image background or a gfxtheme  
    \#GRUB\_BACKGROUND="/path/to/wallpaper"  
    \#GRUB\_THEME="/path/to/gfxtheme"  
      
    \# Uncomment to get a beep at GRUB start  
    \#GRUB\_INIT\_TUNE="480 440 1"  
      
    \#GRUB\_SAVEDEFAULT="true"
    

    My specs: amd 3.0ghz, quad core, 4 gigs ram, 3 hard drives, ati radeon 6870 pci express graphics card.

    let me know if you’d like anything else.

    thanks.

  • It could very well be just the extension. Disable it and enable a different one then see if it still has a problem. That’s the only way to know for sure.

    Cheers!
