I updated Tumbleweed today which included new versions of X and Wayland. Consequently, the graphical UI will not start. According to the systemd log, the X server didn’t start due to an unrecoverable failure. The log mentions a syntax error: missing ) after catch @ resource:///org/gnome/Shell/ui/runDialog.js:175. This caused org.gnome.Shell.desktop to exit.
Is there a workaround for this or some other way to get the UI to run? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Mea culpa. I had had the same problem in the past and had forgotten about it. Thanks very much for your help! Henceforth, I will always update using zypper dup. I had been using the Yast SW update module.
