• reorder icons on dash bar freezes gnome

    Hi. I have a strange problem with gnome .
    I Installed gdm to use wayland session and have energy saver on but when i try to reorder icons in the menu bar (dash to dock or the standard gnome bar) , I freeze the system and I am not even able to reach console via ctrl alt F2, F3 etc. so I wait a little and then the only way out is to press power button.
    I switched to the default icon theme adawita but no luck even there.
    so my question is:

    • Am I the only one who cannot reorde icons position?
    • is there a way to restart the pc without having to press power button even when console is not reachable?
    • btw. I am not able to start gnome account settings in gnome settings … any idea is welcome…
  • wayland session

    • try Gnome on Xorg session to see if the problem persists. (on Login Screen Lightm/GDM)

    Give us some systeminfo:

    sudo pacman -S inxi
    inxi -Fxxc0 | curl -F c=[email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1
  • hi
    the command gives this
    inxi -Fxxc0 | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1
    /etc/host.conf: riga 7: comando “ geopcs” errato

    the host.conf error is the solution for long start up time in firefox from arch wiki
    the same problem (I mean the icon reorder that freezes everything) is also in gnome xorg session.

  • ls ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions

    to show what extensions you are running plz.

  • Hi, I’m getting the same problem here.

    Earlier today I had problems with icons for applications staying on dash to dock after they were closed, similar to this thread, so I don’t know if the two problems are related:


    I removed all extensions, then reinstalled from gnome-shell-extensions website. Now the icons for applications not in my favourites list don’t show on dash to dock when they are running.

    When I saw this post I also tried re-ordering icons in dash to dock and my system froze, it needed the power button to force power off. I’ve tried removing dash to dock, restarting the computer under both Wayland and Xorg, freeze still happens. Clicking on ‘Users’ in Gnome Settings/Details also causes a freeze, other options under Details seem OK.

    I’ve also tried turning off all gnome shell extensions using Tweak Tool, still get the same problem.

    I’ve found some advice on gnome shell problems on the Arch wiki but haven’t had chance to try it yet:


  • I can reproduce this also, it is not related to extensions, as it also happens without any extension enabled.

    crash log:


  • temporary fix - downgrade package gjs to version 1.50.2-1 and it no longer happens

    sudo pacman -S downgrade
    downgrade gjs
  • @giorsat

    Further to my post above, I found this on Arch forums:


    The solution seems to be to downgrade the gjs package to V 1.50.2-1
    download it from:


    and install it:

    cd Downloads

    sudo pacman -U gjs-1.50.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

    Ignore upgrades for gjs for now, in Pamac go to ‘Preferences’ in hamburger menu, top right. Under the General tab, go to ‘Ignore upgrades for:’ click ‘add’, scroll down list and tick gjs.

    Hope this works for you, seems OK here after a quick check, icons appear and disappear from dock as they should, with no freezes after reordering icons.

  • WORKS FOR ME TOOO! downgrade gjs solves the icon reordering problem!

    anyway, is there a way to control my pc when gnome freezes and there is not ctrl alt fsomething working?

  • @giorsat If your user-session is frozen there is not realy a way to get back into this session, and if periferal input devices (mouse / keyboard) not working no way as the only input device working in this state is the power button ;)
    I use ssh to get into the system on freezing, i use my android smartphone with juicessh for this.
    simple install ssh and enable it to start on every boot:

    sudo pacman -S openssh
    sudo systemctl start sshd 
    sudo systemctl enable sshd


  • fixed today, you can remove gjs from ignorepkg !

  • @joekamprad well the question is: how could it be that such a flawed package has passed testing and become official?

  • https://security.archlinux.org/package/gjs – archlinux bug reporting

    But also upstream can be issued:
