desktop login to cinnamon give uh-oh screen

Postby rcrath on Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:23 pm

Hi,
LMDE 32 bit edition, up to date, recent re-install on an old lenovo thinkpad r61 w/ 3 gigs memory and 500 gig ssd

Steps to cause problem:
1. plug in a vga cable for 2nd monitor whil computer is asleep or has login screen up.
2. Login, no second monitor, so hit function-f7 to switch display modes. No luck.
3. reboot and log in to Cinnamon, Cinnamon 2d, or gnome fallback
4. get uh-oh cinnamon has suffered an error it cannot recover from message, which it took me two weeks to figure out could be dismissed with alt f4

attempted solutions:
* delete cinnamon settings (no)
* purge and reinstall cinnamon (no)
* dismiss uh-oh smokescreen and try to reset display: on apply, get message
Code: Select all
Failed to apply configuration: %s
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

* try reinstalling gnome settings daemon (didn't pourge because it wants to uninstall all of the programs which rely on it.)

Temporary solutions:
* temporary solution:full reinstall, but problem recurs next time I plug in the vga cable before logging in.
* workaround: mate, fluxbox, and e17 all work fine.
* workaround: dismiss uh-oh and continue to work in Cinnamon.

ANy ideas what might be going wrong here?

ps, if I reboot with the vga plugged in to the laptop, I get both displays mirrored properly until I try to log in. At the uh-oh sign, I lose the second monitor, but the first one still works.

I think I'm having the same issue as you: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=170751&p=877422#p877422
Did you ever figure out your issue?
