    Unable to boot to Gnome on Xorg

    Hi Friends,

    I am running Fedora 29 Workstation 64 bit, which I keep fully updated.

    Just a few hours ago, I was able to boot to Gnome on Xorg at the log in, but now it is getting stuck after I enter my password and nothing happens after that. I am able to boot to other options without any issues though namely Gnome and Gnome Classic. What could have possibly gone wrong here? Thanks

    Code:
    [james@localhost ~]$ env | grep -i 'current\|desktop\|session'
    XDG_SESSION_ID=2
    DESKTOP_SESSION=gnome
    XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland
    XDG_SESSION_DESKTOP=gnome
    XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME
    GDMSESSION=gnome
    DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:path=/run/user/1000/bus
    SESSION_MANAGER=local/unix:@/tmp/.ICE-unix/7715,unix/unix:/tmp/.ICE-unix/7715
    [james@localhost ~]$ 
    [james@localhost ~]$

    Code:
    [james@localhost ~]$ ls /usr/share/xsessions/
    gnome-classic.desktop  gnome.desktop  gnome-xorg.desktop
    [james@localhost ~]$ 
    [james@localhost ~]$ ls /usr/share/xsessions/

    Re: Unable to boot to Gnome on Xorg

    Whenever I select "Gnome on Xorg" at the login screen and enter my password, I am stuck with a gray screen for hours on end. The system just does not boot to Gnome on Xorg at all. But I am able to boot to other options without any issues namely Gnome and Gnome Classic. Can you please guide me? I have no problem using Gnome, but it for some reason unknown to me keeps crashes and brings the system back to login screen. I did start a fresh thread on this very issue just a few days ago and I was advised to use "Gnome on Xorg", which I did and there was no problem whatsoever for some many days on the trot, but it was yesterday only that I could no longer boot to "Gnome on Xorg".

    I have posted the screenshots here for you to have a look.
