GDM crashes when Sugar session is selected
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Sugar

Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Ubuntu: New

Bug description:
I installed Sugar, and the session is properly listed as an option from GDM, but as soon as I select that session with the combo box GDM immediately crashes. This does not happen for any other sessions and occurs all the time for me.

I poked through the system log and the following stood out:

Mar 19 17:30:45 dylan-netbook gdm-session-worker[1439]: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_value_get_boolean: assertion `G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOOLEAN (value)' failed
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-simple-slave[933]: CRITICAL: Cannot read specified session file: sugar.desktop
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-binary[767]: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.112974 seconds
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-simple-greeter[1477]: WARNING: error opening connection: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/gdm-greeter-CveyZvQE: Connection refused

The fact that GDM is crashing is being filed as a separate bug.

Here is % cat /usr/share/xsessions/sugar.desktop
