I also get these 2 "Could not init path element..." errors on my
machine, so I wouldn't worry about those.


I would look first at that Fontconfig error in local.conf.  That file is
in /etc/fonts/local.conf, and obviously gdm doesn't like something on
line 29.  Have you tried to change it recently? Or did some changes to
your fonts?
