gnome-session gave us a dead inhibitor debian 9.4 Stretch

Postby 4joeyirosh1 » 2018-07-19 17:41

Hi!I have installed Debian 9.4 Stretch 64 bit on my machine.

I have noticed that that my gnome shell freezes periodically especially when watching videos from VLC.The videos continue running but I cannot minimize the screen and I am forced to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete that kills the VLC session then my screen becomes active.

I checked the system logs from var/log/messages and found the messages below at the time of the freeze

Jul 19 21:11:57 debian gnome-session[1214]: gnome-session-binary[1214]: GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_object_unref: assertion 'G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

Jul 19 21:12:01 debian tracker-extract[1444]: unable to create file '/run/user/1000/dconf/user': Permission denied. dconf will not work properly.

Kindly assist in resolving this.

Which video hardware and drivers are you using?

If you are running proprietary drivers then try switching to the free versions instead.

Try installing xserver-xorg-video-intel, you may be experiencing a bug in the generic modesetting driver.

The package xserver-xorg-video-intel was already installed before the freezes.

Really? I thought stretch was supposed to default to the modesetting DDX driver :?

Anyway, I missed the rather obvious Skylake references, you need firmware-misc-nonfree, at least.
