On my Intel integrated graphics touchscreen with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, after an
apt-get upgrade from 10.04.1 LTS to 10.04.4 LTS,
sudo less /var/log/gdm/:0-slave.log shows 3 lines, the first being:
gdm-session-worker: GLIB-GObject-CRITICAL: g_value_get_boolean: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOOLEAN (value)' failed.
I rebooted and still ended up at a blank black screen with an undecorated white terminal window in the upper left corner. Ctrl+Alt+F1 to login at a text console and
sudo ps x |grep gdm show gdm-binary, gdm-simple-slave, and X auth gdm aotaIM or something, and gdm-session-worker running.
sudo service gdm restart merely restarts the same X session. How do i get my Gnome taskbar etc. back?
sudo service gdm stop && startx almost works (my taskbar doesn't appear when i press Alt+F1), but how should i fix it properly?
xterm$ gdmsetup xterm$ cat /etc/gdm/custom.conf [daemon] AutomaticLoginEnable=true AutomaticLogin=b TimedLoginEnable=true TimedLogin=b TimedLoginDelay=10 xterm$ sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf xterm$ cat /etc/gdm/custom.conf [daemon] AutomaticLoginEnable=true AutomaticLogin=b TimedLoginEnable=true TimedLogin=b TimedLoginDelay=10 DefaultSession=gnome xterm$ sudo reboot
No difference. gdmsetup still won't unlock. When ran with sudo, the unlock button greys out but i still can't change the settings.
