View Full Version : [SOLVED] Gnome shell crashing after removing ^user theme^ extension

27th May 2011, 02:10 PM
Hi all
Since I do not like any of shell themes i downloaded, today I decided to remove user theme shell-extension

I removed it from the : Add/remove software, from menu
After logging out, and in, I keep getting : Gnome shell crashed, please log out...

I have downloaded few shell themes from gnome look, and they all work.. But did not like them, always used default theme, so I decided to remove extension..

Themes are in /home/user/.themes and I did not remove them..

I tried restarting system few times, but no use :(

I am using Fedora 15 64bit
Since I cant loggin
Now I am on Fedora live USB system...

I hope I do not have to reinstall system :(

Thanks in advance

This is the extension :

Edit 2 :
I removed "user theme" extension, but I did not delete "theme selector extension" from ~/.local/gnome-shell/extensions

I just deleted it's folder from extensions, restarted, and I'm back in my Fedora :)

Fedora 15 rocks, by the way :)

What happened is that when you removed the user-theme extension the theme extension schema which all the theme selectors depend upon was also removed. Hence the GNOME shell failure. Unfortunately the user-theme extension does not play well with other extensions.

Thank you for explanation, and thank you for your extensions :)

Using these 3 in folder :)
