Somewhere along the way my system got hosed to the point that gnome-shell has become unusable, it freezes when I try to do anything. Currently surviving on life support (LXDE) but really need to get this fixed. I did try to downgrade some updates that I suspected would fix it but that didn't help. First thing that broke was the Chromium browser, thought a restart might fix it and then the gnome-shell issues started. Was able to get a masked 27.x version of Chromium to run fine, but the previous version was all aw-snap even after rebuilding it.

I need some assistance trouble-shooting this issue. I have deleted my gnome configuration hoping that maybe an extension or some incompatible setting would ameliorate the problem but so far no success.

Any clues or troubleshooting tips are much appreciated.

Thanks,

Chris

Hey Darkphader

Is it possible...

This theme could be the root of the problem?

Try removing the theme and see if that helps.

Cheers.

Thanks,

Removed all of the gnome settings and get the default gnome desktop for a second before it crashes putting this in .gnomerc-errors:

The Chromium issue was a red herring - a separate problem. I had at one time unmasked V8 and Chromium, but ended up removing the unmask of Chromium which was fine for a long time but the unmasked V8 finally got to the point where it didn't work with the ~ version of Chromium, which is why 27.x worked but 26.x did not. Once I downgraded V8 and recompiled Chromium-26.x it was fine. However still struggling with gnome-shell.

Beginning to look like a spidermonkey issue.

Found this in /var/log/messages:

However, remerging spidermonkey did not solve the issue.
