    Default gnome login problem

    Hi,

    I changed my desktop environment from xfce to gnome. It worked fine. Then I started to customize it. While I was configuring something called like orpa (screen magnifier kind of thing) it asked me to log off and log in again. After I logged off, I couldnt re log in. When I choose my name from log in screen it doesnt do anything and turns back to log in screen after a second.

    Thanks in advance.

    edit: I can access console

    edit2: problem magically solved I guess it was GTK bug

    If you just started to customize Gnome (and have not much to loose), try to remove ~/.gconf. That's were Gnome writes the user configuration in xml files. It might put some stuff in ~/.config too (like Xfce). It also saves somme apps settings in ~/.gnome2.

    Thanks for reply, but I did things in console and it worked somehow. It logged in and offered me to save a bug report. I saved it just in case, but computer works fine now.

    Thanks again.

    It looks like I am getting a constant error now :S

    it says :

    Code:
    GTK GUI wanted but not found, falling back to Qt.
    Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to retrieve property `GtkTreeView::odd-row-color' of type `GdkColor' from rc file value "((GString*) 0x89cf100)" of type `GString'
    
    ** (<unknown>:11668): CRITICAL **: giop_thread_request_push: assertion `tdata != NULL' failed
    
    ** (<unknown>:11668): CRITICAL **: giop_thread_request_push: assertion `tdata != NULL' failed
    I am getting this when I use yast. I didn't get it anywhere else yet, but I guess I wil see this more often
