On the failing user the above header is completely missing, the first
message is from gnome-settings-daemon. This suggests a fundamental
problem with Xsession, but only for this user. I probably just have to
delete a config file somewhere but I do not know what.
Some things to check and do in no particular order:
3. Start gnome-session in debug mode. One way to do this is to edit one
of the desktop files in /usr/share/xsessions and modify its Name= line to
"Gnome Debug Session" and the exec lines to "gnome-session --debug". Save
the file as gnome-debug.desktop. Then, when you are at the gdm login
screen, choose the Gnome Debug Session from your list of sessions and
proceed to login.
Whilst preparing to try this I realised that I have been a complete
idiot. The cause of the problem is that I have been unintentionally
starting the gnome failsafe session from the login screen. How it got
into this mode I do not know, I did not do it intentionally, but once
selected it defaults to this so has been running in failsafe mode ever
My one hope is that having gone through all this grief someone in the
future will google to this and solve their problem quicker than I did.
(Let me know if this is you).
Many thanks all for your help.
I am now going to put a virtual paper bag over my head to hide my embarrassment.
