Hello Mate lovers,
I am linux newbie and ran into some BSOD snap.
os: linux mint 13 maya (32-bit)
box: HP EX490 homeserver (headless)
vnc: ultravnc viewer on desktop
I ended up with a BOSD after installing gdevilspie to place some settings
to make some apps open automatically on specific workspaces.
The BOSD appeared after I restarted.
It's looks like a BOSD, however the mouse is working and some basic
icons appear on the 'desktop', as well as an error window (see image attachment)
Using SSH I uninstalled gdevilspie, however this yielded no improvement.
I didn't purge the installation as I thought the config files might give
a hint to the problem/solution. (I don't know how to locate these files
Trying to stop and restart MDM through SSH didn't help.
P.S. I use a .sh script at startup using startup applications feature to
get maya to work on the right screen resolution for my desktop (1050x1680).
I don't believe it's relevant, as I maya started just fine numerous times
with it the script installed.
