gnome 2.32 problem


I installed Opensuse today.
I ask in IRC how I could install gnome 2.32
So I add the repostories and did a distupgrade.
After that I rebooted my system.

But now every window I start begins at the top and walks down.
Also I see the window, then not, then I see it.

I have a AMD64 K8 system with a Nvidia Geforce 7300 LE card.

How can I solve this ?

gnome 2.30 is the latest gnome available for 11.3, anything more
recent has to be considered as unreleased (for supported openSUSE)

therefore your question is best asked in
since that is the place beta testers hang out…and, one of those may
have already seen this symptom and knows how to work it…

and, actually users advanced enough to use pre-release software should
also be advanced enough to work out problems encountered–or, at least
post a bug report so the developers can fix the problem…

you might get help from the developers directly on the IRC
channel…they don’t hang out here in the forums much…

I have the same problem. I’ve found that metacity is not working.

From .xsession-errors:

/usr/bin/metacity: symbol lookup error: /usr/bin/metacity: undefined symbol: gdk_window_get_background_pattern

I can’t find if it’s problem with metacity or with libraries.

I fount the solution. “zypper dup” does not upgrade everything. I hat to manually select and gtk2 to upgrade.

Thanks! Problem solved with GTK2 update. I recommend to change priority in gnome2.32 repo.

Hmm, sorry to revive an old thread, but I seem to be having the same problem - using GTK 2.20.1 - I don’t see any further updates in mainstream repos (not factory or similar). Also, my top taskbar seems to want to appear halfway down the screen on login (can be moved back to the top with a quick expand/un-expand), don’t know if this is related, but occurred at the same time. There are no metacity references in .xsession-errors . Things work OK in GNOME/Openbox though…?
