Thread: How to troubleshoot gnome3 failures?

    Default How to troubleshoot gnome3 failures?

    After running Gnome3 without any problems for the last 2 months or so, I installed compiz the other night, which appears to have corrupted my installation.

    I've now uninstalled compiz, and tried gnome-shell --replace, but this appears to fail, and instead drops me back into the old gnome style (fallback?).

    Any ideas how I can troubleshoot what's going on?

    Hi
    Check down in ~/.config/compiz and remove the file called
    enable-compiz, the touch the disable file, eg;
    Code:
    rm ~/.config/compiz/enable-compiz
    touch ~/.config/compiz/disable-compiz
    There was probably no need to remove, just disable....

    ^ this, combined with resetting my x11 config back to install version

    rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    ...has resolved the problem.

    Many thanks!
