I just installed the new Windows 7 RC besides my Mint 6 install. Since Windows killed GRUB, I reinstall via this How-To which worked flawlessy - almost. I can boot Mint now, but it wont load the Desktop/Gnome. I get a weird yellow-striped background, with conky running in the background. Networkmanager seems to also have started, since it asked for my password (Internet works). So, how do I fix this? I found the following in daemon.log
Code: Select all
x-session-manager: WARNING: Unable to find provider gnome-wm of required component windowmanager
x-session-manager: WARNING: Application gnome-panel.desktop failed to register before time-out
x-session-manager: WARNING: Application nautilus.desktop failed to register before time-out
x-session-manager: WARNING: Application libcanberra-log-sound.desktop failed to register before time-out
x-session-manager: WARNING:Could not launch application user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop: Unable to start application: Failed to execute child process "xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update2 (No such file or directory)
I search a bit and found out that it might me related to compiz, so I removed it but that didnt do the trick. Last week I added the Mint 7 repos and updated a few mint* components via that, but that always worked flawlessy. I occured just after repairing GRUB.
