    Hey, I just started getting the same problem. What did you do to get it?

    I upgraded many many things from the GNOME/Factory:/Next repo for opensuse 11.1 x86_64. now i'm getting this issue about the monitors.xml file and the right click log out.

    Have you found a solution yet?

    Thanks

    I just found out what is was.. i just read on launchpad that some guy using Ubuntu intrepid, had an issue with his monitors.xml file with relationship to gnome-settings-daemon. The daemon, in my case, was upgraded to version 2.25.3-7.5. So i downgraded to 2.24.0-3.17. FIXED! desktop wallper change works, test size decreased to my settings, no errors with xml file. Try it out.

    If you need anything let me know.

    Can you please file a bug on bnc so the GNOME team can fix before deliver BETA's and Final for 11.1.

    Thanks

    Oh i remember i can reproduce the same on my jhbuild and it seems to be fixed from the last svn trunk. So after gnome-settings-daemon upgraded on G:F:N you won't get that bug.

    Yes, the next release 2.25.90 will fix that bug.

    If you're interested you can also join the GNOME 2.25.90 packaging day: [opensuse-gnome] openSUSE GNOME Packaging Day

    And hopefully get 2.25.90 updated that day

    I've run in to the same issue now. I end up with a screen of white-on-white, so I can't see anything. How can I fix this from a non-gui session ?
