Dear mailing list,

after 5 months without updating my system (I know!), I just ran guix 
pull and reconfigured my system with the latest gnome desktop. 
Unfortunately, when I start this latest system generation, gnome 
shell crashes after about 1 minute (I get the “oops, something went 
wrong” grey screen of death).

Looking in the logs (/var/log/messages and ~/.cache/gdm/session.log), 
I find the messages involving 
org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.UsbProtection.desktop that coincide with the 
moment of the crash.  Here are the messages from session.log:

** (gsd-usb-protection:1051): WARNING **: 11:15:06.587: Failed to 
connect to the screen saver: Error calling StartServiceByName for 
org.gnome.ScreenSaver: Timeout was reached

gnome-session-binary[842]: WARNING: App

Any suggestions for solutions or workarounds?  Has anybody else 
experienced this behaviour?  Due to the long time between updates 
(previous generation was from February), it might not be obvious to 
track the change that causes this error (likely a new gnome desktop 
version I suppose...).

sincerely,

Thomas

You have any GNOME extensions installed? I think they can cause such crashes. Try switching to a TTY, uninstalling them all, and logging in again.

No I don't (not that I'm aware of at least).  There is no 
'extensions' directory in  ~/.local/share/gnome-shell.  And if look 
at Settings > Extensions, there's nothing there either.

This has happened to me several times when I upgrade the system but not my user profile. Upgrading my profile and rebooting has solved the problem for me in the past.

Hi Luis,

thanks, upgrading my user profile solved it for me, too.  (Actually I 
thought I'd already done that, but apparently I must have lost my 
patience during a large texlive download, and aborted the first 
upgrade)

Sincerely,

Thomas

I have exactly the same problem after my laptop ran out of battery. I did
not perform any system upgrades. Also after doing guix system reconfigure
and guix home reconfigure still the same problem, any ideas how to proceed?

Cheers,
Reza
