I have an issue very similar to that described by suicidejack over in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=87629
The symptoms are that since this morning when I put my laptop into hibernate I've not been able to log into either gnome-shell, gnome-fallback or cinnamon. Each desktop crashes with the error message "Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."
I can, however, log into & use Mate and a newly created test account does not suffer from the issue. This indicates to me that the problem is local to my account & most likely something to do with gnome3
After much googling, I've not come up with a solution that works for me.
Things I have tried include:
Ensuring compiz is not attempting to start on boot.
Removal of any gnome-shell or cinnamon extensions/applets that might be causing a problem.
Resetting gsettings as described in this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint/+bug/982051
And much more that I've not documented.
Looking for a little help on where to go from here.
Edit: For the record this LMDE installation is on a Macbook 2,1 that uses Intel graphics that appear to be working correctly.
