Getting logged out of Gnome

Postby bleakcabal » 2017-08-03 22:05

Hello,
I am using Debian Jessie with the standard Gnome installation.

Once in a while, I am getting logged out of Gnome. My screen blanks and then I am redirected to the graphical login screen. I enter my password again and when I'm back again in Gnome all my applications have been closed. This happens are irregular intervals but seems to be happening more frequently.

I have done a apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.
I typically run the following applications: VS Code, Firefox, Gnome Terminal with ZSH and the Gnome file manager.

How can I go on finding out what is happening?

I have the same issue with Stretch. Crash from gnome-shell to login screen (lightdm) happens more often lately.
My log shows
Code: Select all
Aug  3 14:22:32 abcd kernel: [ 2853.784072] gnome-session-f[2141]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f58677c6e19 sp 00007ffea323e8d0 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.2200.11[7f58674e4000+700000]


I found https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=100769 where they say it's a nouveau Nvidia driver problem.

@bleakcabal do you use a Nvidia card?

Yes I have an Nvidia card with the nouveau driver.

And what log did you find this entry?

Code: Select all
/var/log/kern.log

or after Gnome quits to the login screen you can see the entry with
Code: Select all
#dmesg
or
Code: Select all
#journalctl -kn

VS Studio
omg, microsoft is going opensource now! with community & blog links...
still, i suspect it is an extremely heavyweight java blob; combined with nouveau it just might be responsible for bringing your system to its knees.
maybe you need to rethink your workflow?
remember, every Linux install is an IDE!
