Ubuntu doesn't enter any WM except Gnome on Wayland

Tedd M. V.
Hello people.

I have a machine using Ubuntu 18.04 with the kernel 4.15.0-34-generic
using all the latest updates I have tried in the past to use another WM,
but every time and install one and reboot to select it at the login
screen it seems to load, a black screen appears and then the login
screen shows agains.

Some notes:

* I have tried to use KDE, lxde, xfce, i3, and xmonad.
* Unity and Gnome without Wayland also don't work.
* When the machine had few time after the update to 18.04 it was
  possible to use Unity and non-Wayland Gnome, but I never used any
  other WM.
* I believe it has something to do with the permissions, you see, in
  the past I tried to use synaptic and run other programs as sudo, but it
  didn't work if used under Wayland so someone on an official Ubuntu
  forum said something about running this command 'xhost
  si:localuser:root' and I think I also used with my normal user.
* Another user said something about editing config .name file, but I
  don't remember which one, it was similar the command what I edited.

Thanks for your atention and I'm hoping you can help,
Tedd.

Try creating a new user and login to your alternate desktop as that
user.  I'm not proposing this as the final fix, but it will at least
assure you that the system is working properly.


I suspect your problem is probably a .Xauthority file in your home
folder that is owned by root.  You should be able to simply delete this
file and try again.

Hi Rashkae, I tried both things, creating a new
accounts works :) but deleting the '.Xauthority' didn't do anything. Is
there other file that I should look at?

Thanks for help.

I suggest stripping it and doing a clean install of UbubtuMATE 16.04.

UbuntuMATE 18.04 installed and runs okay (as much as it is, as it has
lost some of the packages that are present in 16.04), for me.

I use a Win95 appearance GUI on UbuntuMATE 16.04 and 18.04.

Change the ownership of all files in your home directory to yourself and your group, which normally they should be anyway. Google will tell you how.

Why? It all works with a different user, there is nothing fundamental wrong.

I just noticed, in a reply to that, that I incorrectly put 16.04,
instead of 18.04.

Should have been 18.04....

this is desired behaviour by design of the GNOME/wayland developers:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1274451

apps using sudo or the graphical equivalent will not work under
wayland, they need to be re-written to operate as frontend and backend
processes (so the graphical part always runs as user whle the backend
can elevate its permissions on demand)

Wow, I didn't knew that, does Wayland provide any way to run this
programs on some sort of special mode? What does that command did?

Hello Colin, I'm sorry but that didn't work either, I used 'sudo chowd -R
user ~/'.

Thanks.

I'm sorry to you and all the users, I send an email in blank...

Thanks, but I don't really need that, you see, MATE does not suit my
needs, I need a simple, stable, minimalistic WM like Xmonad or i3, with
good tiling, the WM you mention don't have that.

Okay.

I also noticed, after I had posted my suggestion, that you apparently
want the Wayland thing, with which. I have no experience.

As long as I can switch between Xmonad and any other classic WM (Gnome,
KDE) it really doesn't matter if it uses Wayland or X11, but wiping my
system completly is too radical. I think there most be something wrong
in a configuration file.

Thanks.

its a good thing you miss-spelled the command. If you had spelled it
right...

And you need to spec both user:group when it is spelled right. user is of
course your login name.

Hi, I did write wrong but run it 'almost' correctly; but I'm sorry...which
group should I use?

The command 'groups' show me this:
tmv adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare debian-tor

Thanks.

Hello Colin, I'm sorry but that didn't work either, I used 'sudo chowd -R
user ~/'.

sudo chown -R username:username /home/username

Colin



Thanks.

Your installer didn't add you as a group? I don't believe I've ever
installed without getting that setup by the installer.  I have some
stuff in a group sandbox, but if its missing, su to root and groupadd
your username  should work, then your home/$user directory s/b owned by
$user:$user when you do an ls -l. Then, if your can't run something, add
your group to that somethings name in /etc/group. man pages can be
wonderfull sources of info about such things IF correctly written.

Well...thanks, but fucking WM still doesn't wanna work, I think I'm
gonna ask on the mailing lists of Xmonad and link this discussion, maybe
them who work directly on X related project know about this...maybe it's
a bug...

Thanks for all your help.
