Just upgraded for 18.04 to 20.04. Tried to log in with flashback. Screen displays desktop for a second and immediately reverts to log-in screen. Happens with both compiz and metacity. Both sessions are listed in /usr/share/xsessions. Can log in successfully to gnome-classic. Am I missing some critical flashback extension?
It does not have Hidden=true This is the contents:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=GNOME Flashback Exec=gnome-flashback OnlyShowIn=GNOME-Flashback; NoDisplay=false X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=Desktop X-GNOME-Autostart-Notify=true X-GNOME-AutoRestart=true X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-flashback
Thank you for your suggestions. Deleted the gnome-flashback.desktop file from .local/share/applications and could successfully log into flashback. But all icons are locked in place. Icon placement is set to auto. Tried to change it to "free" with dconf /org/gnome/gnome-flashback/desktop/icons/placement but it kept reverting to "auto-arrange-icons" There are several gnome- files in the local applications directory: gnome-keyboard-panel.desktop gnome-logs_gnome-logs.desktop gnome-software-local-file.desktop gnome-system-monitor.desktop gnome-system-monitor_gnome-system-monitor.desktop
and several org.gnome files. Should any of these be deleted also???
