GDM crashes when Sugar session is selected
Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “sugar-0.88” source package in Lucid:
Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Debian:
*** START SRU INFO ***
This package causes GDM to crash as-is. The fix is to add a comment to the .desktop file. This is not fixed in Maverick, but the fix has been well-tested and will be included in the next Debian version of the package. slangasek on IRC said he didn't see a problem with uploading this without fixing it in Maverick first.
** TEST CASE **
Install sugar-0.88. Switch to GDM. Select a user, and select "Sugar" as the session.
OLD BEHAVIOR: GDM should crash, disappearing from the screen.
NEW BEHAVIOR: The option is selected.
*** END SRU INFO ***
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: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_value_get_boolean: assertion `G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOOLEAN (value)' failed
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-simple-slave: CRITICAL: Cannot read specified session file: sugar.desktop
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-binary: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.112974 seconds
Mar 19 17:30:49 dylan-netbook gdm-simple-greeter: 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
