I've tried to install Gnome3 on my fresh Mint 14 - Cinnamon system.
I've installed with apt-get and Synaptic too [gnome-shell, gnome-session], but neither worked. They produced the same crush problem.
While the installation prozess it asks for wich to use: gdm or mdm.
If I select mdm, the installation stops or somehow don't suceed.
So as I selected gdm.
- When I singed out it popped out a window:
Cannot start the greeter application, you will not able to log in. This display will be disabled.
Try logging in by other means and editing the configuration file.
- When I rebooted: It just simple hanged on after the Mint loading screen. Nothing works, no sings, no reactions...
With root permission it writed back: Failed to load session "ubuntu".
Another error message i've produced(don"t know how x)): gdm: WARNING: GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: chek x server log for errors.
So somehow gdm can't get the Xserver display
Thanks for any help!
