I am using Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 with GNOME3 Team's GNOME3-Staging PPA and now unable to login (as user) because of an issue about DBus. I know that because trying sudo restart dbus takes forever. However, login as root (from Ctrl-Alt F1 console, I have enabled root account) followed by startx /usr/bin/gnome-shell works at least partially. GNOME Terminal would not work because it could not register itself via (the missing) session bus. My display manager is GDM 3.12. My init daemon is Upstart, however trying SystemD gives the same failure.


Problem solved afted upgrading to 13.10 alpha and transistioning to systemd.
