I upgraded to kernel 3.2 last night. Now:
- Gnome 3 resets to default after reboot and/or log out.
- Cannot change theme, font, etc through gnome tweak tool.
- cannot add any keyboard shortcuts that carryover across reboots.
- Mouse freezes after reboot. Have to run synaptics trackpad manually twice from the applications lens before it starts but has default settings.
Same with unity.Created new user. Same problem.
Selected old kernel from boot. Problem persists. No changes to UI are present after logout or reset.
In essence, any changes made to ubuntu get reset on reboot. As if I am running a live cd. Every time I boot up, i have the same settings as whatever came out of the box.
Is this a user rights issue? Some file(s) cannot be overwritten because of insufficient privileges (i am admin on this machine)
Edit: Tried gnome-settings-daemon in terminal
$ gnome-settings-daemon Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: gtk-widgets.css:1597:20: Invalid animation description GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend. Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications. ** WARNING **: You can only run one xsettings manager at a time; exiting ** WARNING **: Unable to start xsettings manager: Could not initialize xsettings manager. ** WARNING **: Name taken or bus went away - shutting down
Two Xsetting managers? How do I get rid of one of them? What is the other one?
Kindly help (ubuntu noob)
