• Login to Gnome desktop from LightDM come back... LightDM


    Hi

    I’m a newbie and I have a problem width Gnome desktop.

    My login screen is LightDM. Usually I’m using XFCE4. Today I just want to test Gnome desktop. Then I installed gnome-session package and it’s OK.

    On LightDM, in the desktop combo choice, I have this :

    • GNOME
    • GNOME
    • GNOME for xorg
    • Plasma
    • XFCE4

    If I choose XFCE4 or Plasma, I’m starting my session with Plasma or XFCE.

    But If I choose GNOME or GNOME or GNOME for Xorg I’m coming back to LightDM…

    Si someone can help me please ?

  • Are you sure you installed all of the Gnome packages? This can happen sometimes if a package is missing😀

  • How can I check that ?

  • @sebastien you are missing some packages for Gnome Desktop.
    for complete Gnome you need to install package group of gnome pacman -S gnome if you want all gnome install gnome-extra group too pacman -S gnome-extra

    @Keegan (ha ha faster ;) )

  • Thanks so much. It works :-)

    Just a final question to this subject ;-)

    What is the difference between the first and the second GNOME on LightDM combo ?

    I was close… so close…

  • Lightdm reads the entrys from two different places :

    /usr/share/wayland-sessions/gnome.desktop
    /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop
    /usr/share/xsessions/gnome-xorg.desktop
    

    unluckily this ones have the same name so they look the same…
    and do the same if you do not do some hacking “gnome” is starting with a wayland session by default, but if this fails it will fallback to Xorg too, gnome-xorg starts the Xorg session straight ahad…

    Gnome Classic is not a real standalone session, it is an extension/theme with less effects and a more simple surface.

    I think one is the normal Gnome and the other is similar to Gnome 2.

  • Jeez. It’s like a race to answer first here !!!
