uninstall & reinstall Gnome 3

I think my Gnome 3 environment is hosed up.

Is there a procedure to uninstall & then reinstall Gnome 3 on F16?

I'd like to do that as a test to see if my issue is really Gnome 3 or not.

Re: uninstall & reinstall Gnome 3


Thanks for the information.

I did this but along the way noticed that what I thought was a gnome facility appears not to be.

The Fedora baloon that shows white and then gradually fills up to the full blue icon shows up even in multi-user.target mode. So, I assume that the login sequence isn't gnome at all, but just some gui front end. It's that front end I'm having a problem with.

During the yum reinstall of the gnome desktop, a message popped up : unable to connect to dbus

That points at the same problem I'm trying to solve - At start up , I never get a login screen and /var/log/message is giving me permission problems with /usr/bin/dbus-launch from gdm-simple-slave. I started a thread last night about that and got no replies so I thought I'd nuke gnome desktop which I now believe had noting to do with my issue.

A reboot of the box gives me the identical problem I had before the gnome desktop reinstall, which confirms my suspicion.

For whatever reason, I think dbus is hosed. Now I'll have to try to figure that out.

Any suggestions?
