[solved] Cinnamon not starting
« on: 2015/06/28, 16:53:24 »
Hi friends,
After the latest dist-upgrade today, i cant login to x. When i enter user details in lightdm, im getting the following error message

Failed to load session "cinnamon"

I can login to user at command line

The .xsession.error file:

x-session-manager[7317]: WARNING: Unable to find required component 'cinnamon'
x-session-manager[7317]: WARNING: Unable to find required component 'cinnamon-polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1'
x-session-manager[7317]: WARNING: Unable to find required component 'cinnamon-screensaver'
x-session-manager[7317]: WARNING: Unable to find required component 'cinnamon-killer-daemon'

Any ideas?

Thank you

Hello sreek,

no big affair, you just removed your desktop environment.
root@sidbox:~# LANG=C apt-get dist-upgrade 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Calculating upgrade... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  cinnamon cinnamon-screensaver gir1.2-webkit2-3.0 libwebkit2gtk-3.0-25
The following packages will be upgraded:
  gir1.2-javascriptcoregtk-3.0 gir1.2-webkit-3.0 libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0
  libwebkitgtk-3.0-0 libwebkitgtk-3.0-common
5 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B/10.4 MB of archives.
After this operation, 68.8 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] No!
Abort.
root@sidbox:~#


In order to get it back you first need to downgrade theese five packages from version 2.4.9-2  to version 2.4.9-1 :
gir1.2-javascriptcoregtk-3.0
gir1.2-webkit-3.0
libjavascriptcoregtk-3.0-0
libwebkitgtk-3.0-0
libwebkitgtk-3.0-common

The current plan is  "Let's wait for the migration of muffin, then we upload the new cinnamon"
So you would wait a bit longer until the debian-cinnamon team has prepared new packages changing from libwebkit2gtk-3.0-dev to libwebkit2gtk-4.0-dev.

greetings
musca

Hello sreek,

cinnamon-screensaver 2.6.4-1 was uploaded, so you can "apt-get install cinnamon" again.
