Gnome error "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" when logging in


#1

Hi Team

while updating my system got shutdown without my presence.

After that when i wanted to reboot my system im getting an error"Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can’t recover. Please contact a system administrator"
Did anybody ever face that problem, do you know what solution could work

Hi ,
in archives i found such instructions, maybe the will solve your problem - The fact that you can log in to the desktop as root makes me think that maybe it’s a configuration issue, rather than a broken GUI functionality. What happens if you log into a virtual terminal (pressing ctrl-alt-F1 and logging as user form there) and rename all the gnome-related config directories that are inside /home/<your_user>? Directories and europeanstudentthinktank have .gnome* at the beginning. You could also rename .config since it has some Gnome config files. After renaming these directories, try to log in as user again from the GUI to see what happens.
