• Gnome 2.34 Upgrade - GDM Busted

    Hey Everyone,

    I updated to Gnome 3.24, and restarted my laptop. When I booted I am greeted with the CLI, and not my usual GDM login screen.

    I am assuming something broke when I updated? =(

    Thanks in advance!

  • @a4orce84 said in Gnome 2.34 - How to install on Antergos?:

    get is the CLI
    What do you mean by that? GDM is not starting ?
    You can get to TTY2 and log in to CLI?
    Or GDM is failing to start and do loops? (blinking cursor)

    systemctl status gdm

    and only for reference (i do not remember what you get) what graphics + which drivers and if possible a

    journalctl -b
  • Here is what I see when I try to start GDM manually:

    I did have Redshift installed previously, but I uninstalled it. I saw that a few people had issues with Redshift still installed when updating Gnome.



  • It seems gdm got uninstalled ¿?

    sudo su
    pacman -S gdm
    systemctl enable gdm
    systemctl start gdm


  • @karasu

    Why would it be uninstalled? I guess I’m confused how it happened.

  • If you want to find out, check your pacman.log file in /var/log ;)

  • Back in my Gnome DE. Thank you!

    However, it appears several things are missing (settings options, display settings options, etc.). Do I need to reinstall these packages also?

  • it seems that some people have similar upgrade issues… like missing some gnome packages…
    As far as i know there is no Antergos-Gnome-Packagegroup?
    So you can only take the Arch Gnome groups:

    sudo pacman -S gnome
  • @joekamprad -

    Are you wanting me to install a specific package?

  • @a4orce84

    You have to reinstall the gnome package, yes. It seems that some gnome components are missing in your computer.
