Thread: On Gnome Desktop 'SLE Classic' Session is missing as a login choice.

  1. #1

    Default On Gnome Desktop 'SLE Classic' Session is missing as a login choice.

    Hi All,

    I had installed some gnome-extensions. But after a package update most of those extensions get missing. Although I have the top panel with my favorite icons on it. But it does not move to the bottom of the Desktop where I want it to move. Earlier I used to log-in at the 'SLE Classic' session but that is missing from the choices. After clicking the 'Button' at the login, only the following session choices are displayed:
    GNOME
    GNOME on Xorg
    ICEWM Session
    TWM

    None of these work to produce the bottom white panel which earlier 'SLE Session' used to display earlier on the Desktop.

    Need guidance to get 'SLE Session' displayed or solve this issue by other means.

    Thanks & Regards,

    RSP2

    Hi
    GNOME Classic option....are gnome-shell-classic and gnome-shell-classic-session installed?

    Hi Malcolm,

    Thanks a lot once again.
    The gnome-shell-classic was not installed. Installed it and it worked like a magic.

    Lots of Regards,

    Default Re: Desktop Folders do not open in Nautilus but shows a strange circular colorful view.

    Hi All,

    Working in Leap-15.2 Gnome Desktop.
    Suddenly a problem with the file-manager has arisen in opening folders on the Desktop. When I open the home folder or any other folder on the Desktop, it does not open in the 'Nautilus' but displays it in a strange view. Unfortunately there is no provision to send an attachment with the thread; otherwise I would have attached a screenshot of this strange view.

    Suggestions to get out of this problem will be most welcome.

    Thanks and Regards,

    RSP2

    For the screenpost, try susepaste.

    Works also from the command line:

    Code:
    susepast -e 0 -n rsp2 <image_filename>
    Others: please replace rsp2 by your own handle.

    Hi Marel,

    Just sent the Screenshot.png on https://susepaste.org.
    The name 'sent by' is not 'rsp2' but 'rsp'.

    Regards,

    Okay, good you did post the image on susepaste but I only could find it using the Recent button.

    So this is the link: https://susepaste.org/43330342

    It has the text "/home/rsp/Desktop/Screenshot from 2021-05-12 19-40-35.png" but not the picture itself.

    Can you try again using:

    Code:
    susepaste -e 0 -n rsp2 "/home/rsp/Desktop/Screenshot from 2021-05-12 19-40-35.png"
    and share the link?

    Default Desktop Icons opening in Files

    Hi Malcolm,

    Meanwhile I had to reinstalled Leap-15.2 due to another upset by Windows. That earlier problem has now disappeared.
    There was yet another issue. While just experimenting and familiarizing, I had Right-clicked on the Desktop and selected 'Show Desktop in Files'. There were some application icons on the Desktop. Those also turned into Files and could not be opened by clicking. By reinstalling this problem did not disappear.
    How to revert to normal display of Application icons?

    Regards,

    RSP2

    I am not on Gnome but on KDE if I read this page I think you just get a new window that shows the files in the Desktop. I think you can just close that window.
