Thread: Metacity not loading at boot

    Question Metacity not loading at boot

    I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 x86-64 on an old Lenovo machine. Recently, I've made a change in gnome-sessions-properties. Since then, every time I log into GNOME (or KDE for that matter), all of my windows are missing their borders. I have to type "metacity --replace" into the Terminal and re-enable Desktop Effects before I can get it back to normal.

    Does anyone have any idea what might be causing it and can offer a permanent solution? Sorry, I'm relatively new to all of this. I'm thinking of modifying /etc/rc.d/boot.local

    Thanks for your time

    boot.local has nothing to do with the desktop. Rather look in your ~/.config/autostart or try to login as a new user.

    I've looked in both places, but I haven't found a solution yet. Even when I log in on other user accounts, I have the same problem. Also, the clock on my menu bar has disappeared.

    Make the necessary changes to get your desktop just right and then F2 >
    gnome-session-save --logout
    login and log back in.
    Any better?
