• Wayland 1.10 gnome session problem

    Hi guys, how are you?

    I have a problem now, when i try to login in gnome with wayland i can’t init session, ever send me to login screen, ever.

    I think that the problem is the new Waylando version, today i updated Antergos:

    Until now i can login with gnone and budgie, but not with wayland.

    The problem is that now gnome wayland appears by default in init option, i have to change manually to gnome.

    Thank you very much, i wait that for the next installation ISO this problem will fixed.


  • Hi,

    Don’t know about your wayland problem. About your session, you can try to create a file in your home directory called .dmrc (note the starting dot). If your user is alaguna, the full file path should be: /home/alaguna/.dmrc with this contents:


    If this still does not work, then you’ll have to edit lightdm configuration:
    sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and check for user-session parameter, it should read:

    Hmmm, just a thought! Are you using LightDM @alaguna? I have switched to GDM (mainly for power saving reasons). So, if you are on LightDM, why not give GDM a try to see if youcan retrieve your WAYLAND session?

  • @karasu well man, doesn’t works, wayland doesn’t works :’( I have Gnome with Wayland by default in Desktop Chooser in Login Screen yet.

  • OK.

    Can you post here (or better, use pastebin or some similar service) your lightdm configuration? (its /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf)

  • @karasu I have the default configuration, i think, but, i put here it:

  • user-session=gnome

    I don’t know what’s wrong, you have set gnome as user session, so there must be somewhere else that gnome-wayland is selected by default.

    You could try GDM as @anarch suggested.

  • @karasu I reinstalled Antergos, and CNCHi destroy my MBR, thank’s.
