Mint 13 & Gnome Shell

Postby hewjr1000 on Thu May 17, 2012 10:59 am

Installed and updated mint 13, then installed gnome shell. Problem is I cannot log into gnome shell, no option...except for gnome classic and I can't log into classic anyway it defaults to Cinnamon. Any known issues?.

If you are cleaning the house, only fair that she will fix the MDM problem :D The computer isn't going to fix itself, you know :wink:

I am curious as to any replies as I've had the same problem (and my wife has not made me clean the house today .... yet).

I was able to install Ubuntu 12.04 and also gnome-shell w/o any problem.

You could try switching to GDM.

I'm having the same problem. Has anyone attempted replacing MDM with LightDM? I'm too afraid to try ;)

You should install gnome-session as well (it somehow installed Unity as well for me, but it works!). Installing just gnome-shell won't work.
