I installed GNOME 3 on Natty, using the PPA and these instructions. I restarted and tried to log in using Gnome, only to be greeted by a
Oh no! Something has gone wrong.
A problem has occurred and the system
can't recover. Please log out and try again.
It doesn't give any other details. Where can I access the log or know more about the error or How do I fix the problem?
Aspire One ZG5
I tried this from the instructions here
cd ~/.config/autostart nano gnome-shell.desktop
Then, in the editor, type this:
Code: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Exec=gnome-shell --replace Hidden=false NoDisplay=false X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true Name[en_US]=Gnome Shell Name=Gnome Shell Comment[en_US]= Comment=
When I rebooted into GNOME, I did not get the error but I did not get anything else either. Even Unity and Unity 2D failed to load. So, I re-edited gnome-shell.desktop and removed all text. Now when I log in to GNOME, I get the wallpaper and nothing else. I can log in to Unity and Unity 2D though. Also, I have a problem with running software-sources-gtk on the same system. Is it related?
How do I change my video drivers to open source ones? I did not install any drivers while installing Ubuntu, so the drivers are provided by Ubuntu.

After updating to GNOME 3, my system settings folder has changed. I do not have a Hardware Drivers option now. How do I update / change my video drivers?
