Hi, I’ve been getting random crashes on Gnome Shell recently. It seems to happen more often when using the File Manager, Nautilus. I can provide logs, but apparently I can’t upload the tar file containing the logs cause I don’t have the permissions to do so. I’m new to using Antegros(Coming from Ubuntu Land here.), so please bear with me if I am missing something.
Gnome Shell Crashes Randomly
Since I can’t upload my log files as a Zip or Tar file, I’ll just provide a link so someone could download them and take a look at them.
What you installed recently?
What is your machine PC, Laptop or something else?
I saw in your journal these errors below:
"tracker-miner - (sparql buffer) not available"
This application is a gnome service that runs in background, a search engine, search tool and metadata storage system.
As far as I know, tracker app errors cannot crash desktop environment but for me is unneeded and I always remove (frees 50~300 mb of ram to spend in other apps), if you wish, you can remove by
sudo pacman -R tracker
"variety.desktop - raise HTTPError(http_error_msg, response=self)"
Variety Wallpaper Changer;
All I know is that app is written in python2 but I don’t know if can download invalid image and set as wallpaper crashing gnome;
"udiskd sk_disk_smart_read_data - Operation not supported (udisks-error-quark, 0)"
Udisk daemon geta an error when tries to read SMART(Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) data.
This is worrisome can be a disk dying or udisks2 package got corrupted on your system which you can reinstall with
sudo pacman -S udisks2
"gnome-photos liblensfun.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
Optional dependency gegl isn’t installed, you can install by
sudo pacman -S gegl
I recommend that you try one at a time to be sure where is the problem.
