Man so I was working today and in Gnome shell and I was running updates on my laptop and all of a sudden my laptop like started acting weird and so I restarted it and guess what?
The friggin thing wouldn't get back into gnome it booted fine but would not load gnome gdm. So I had a light kde install on it and fired up kdm and was able to get it to at least login to kde but tried to log in to gnome and it spit me back to the kdm login. I logged into kde and backed up all my stuff and wiped it clean thinking okay I'll re-install Arch actually I tried re-installing from the ArchBang CD and got that installed and installed Gnome like I usually do and guess what? It did the same dang thing!!!
So I'm like this sucks!! did some research on the arch forums and couldn't find anyone else having the same problem. So I downloaded ubuntu and that is working fine. I'll probably play with that a little while but try gnome on it and see.
I need this laptop for work and it can't be down to long. i don't know what the deal is, maybe some recent updates is all I can think but it's weird that it happened to me twice. At least this gives me a chance to maybe work on making my gtk themes compatible with unity huh LOL!
At least on my desktop at home I have chakra and arch gnome (and that is still working for the time being ha!!
Any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated
I love arch but every once in a while it does this.
