After an update 3 days ago gnome-shell stopped working, trying to restart it with
gnome-shell --replace only results in another crash and the keyboard stops working.
This is what I get when trying to start gnome-shell:
st_widget_get_theme_node called on the widget [0x24112a0 StButton.status-chooser-user-icon] which is not in the stage.
gnome-shell-calendar-server: Got HUP on stdin - exiting Trace/breakpoint trap
If I look in the
xorg.0.log I got this error:
gnome-session: WARNING: App 'gnome-shell.desktop' respawning too quickly
: CRITICAL: We failed, but the fail whale is dead. Sorry....
metacity --replace just to get the window borders back for now. The interesting thing is if I log in to xfce I got the same problem, no window boarders, must run
metacity --replace in xfce also.
Running Ubuntu 11.10 with gnome-shell 3.2.1.
