Hi,

I had GNOME as my default WM. I also had set it up so that it will
auto login me. Now when I restart the PC, it goes into the Failsafe
mode. I have to first exit the session after which I get the initial user/login
screen (fro GNOME). I have to enter my user id, passwd and select
the GNOME as my WM. I tried setting the default WM to be GNOME
via Desktop Switching tool but of no avail.

Don't know what I changed other than
(1) Installed enlightment
(2) Used the Switch Desktop Tool, to try enlightment.
(3) Failed to reset it back to GNOME via switch desktop tool

Any suggestions, help, tips?

Thanks.

Blaggard

Jason,

Thanks for your reply. I did check out the earlier thread on a similar
issue. I checked the /etc/sysctrl/desktop file - it was set to GNOME!

The issue was that whenever I restart the PC, I always got into
the Failsafe Session. I had to exit out of it and then I got the graphical
login screen - where I had to type in my login id and passwd. I tried
deleting the gnome config files but that didn't help.

Finally I found a ".dmrc" file in my home directory still set to Failsafe
session. I deleted the file and rebooted the machine and bingo, I got
my GNOME back.

Perhaps this is a bug?

Thanks.

Blaggard
