I've installed today the final version of Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 (fresh install, no upgrades), and right after I added the Gnome PPA and updated it to Gnome 3.8, I'm getting errors. Software Center gives an error right after it's open, an then closes, System Monitor gives a error message to, but don't close. I don't know if there are other programs with problems, because I've not tested the system thoroughly.
I updated Gnome this way:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
Running Software Center from terminal gives this error: software-center 2013-04-25 19:35:22,619 - softwarecenter.ui.gtk3.app - INFO - setting up proxy 'None' 2013-04-25 19:35:23,506 - softwarecenter.region - WARNING - failed to use geoclue: 'org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Geoclue.Master was not provided by any .service files' 2013-04-25 19:35:23,860 - softwarecenter.backend.reviews - WARNING - Could not get usefulness from server, no username in config file 2013-04-25 19:35:23,863 - softwarecenter.plugin - INFO - activating plugin '<module 'webapps_activation' from '/usr/share/software-center/softwarecenter/plugins/webapps_activation.pyc'>' 2013-04-25 19:35:23,874 - softwarecenter.fixme - WARNING - logs to the root logger: '('/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/importer.py', 51, 'find_module')' 2013-04-25 19:35:23,873 - root - ERROR - Could not find any typelib for LaunchpadIntegration 2013-04-25 19:35:23,932 - softwarecenter.db.pkginfo_impl.aptcache - INFO - aptcache.open() (software-center:2793): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'software-center' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)'. (Details: serial 2104 error_code 9 request_code 62 minor_code 0) (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously; that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it. To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.) Trace/breakpoint trap (imagem do núcleo gravada)
And running System Monitor from terminal gives this error:
(gnome-system-monitor:2909): WARNING **: SELinux was found but is not enabled
So, my question is: How can I install Ubuntu Gnome 13.04 and update it to Gnome 3.8, without breaking something (If that is possible)?
