jul 01 18:07:12 leandro-stanger /etc/gdm3/Xsession[8920]: /etc/gdm3/Xsession: 23: export: é: bad variable name

Can you attach /etc/gdm3/Xsession here?

What’s the output of:

diff -u $(sudo ostree admin --print-current-dir)/etc/gdm3/Xsession /etc/gdm3/Xsession

Do you remember the time at which you recorded that video, so I can work out the correct section of the log?

How did you create Leandro Stanger2? How did you log in to collect this diagnostic file?

I created through Settings using the Shared Account

Ctrl+Alt+f2 to log in on the console and get a diagnostics

Ah, so … the video doesn’t correlate with the diagnostic. Could you do this:

  1. Attempt to log in as the user that doesn’t work
  2. Wait 1 minute
  3. Ctrl+Alt+F2 and run eos-diagnostics
  4. Attach that here

Just so I can be sure I’m looking at the right section of the log.


Please could you also attach the files from /var/lib/AccountsService/users/? If you have a password hint configured, it is stored there, so you might want to replace it with “REMOVED” or something.


I think you said on Telegram that you’ve tried moving $HOME/.config/dconf/user aside in the account that doesn’t work – please can you confirm that I’m not misremembering?


You could also try this:

  • Ctrl+Alt+F2, log in as the broken user
  • Move all your configuration files aside:
    • mkdir ~/config-backup
    • mv -t ~/config-backup ~/.[^.]*
    • The last argument there means "all files and directories in home (~) beginning with a . and followed by any character other than a dot ([^.]) followed by 0 or more other characters (*)
  • Log out from the text console
  • Ctrl+Alt+F1, try to log in

If this works, move config files and directories back one by one to see which one caused problems.

@wjt I just reinstalled Endless OS

OK, that’s a shame because we have not been able to reproduce this problem, and yet several people have reported it.
