    Gnome Staging PPA and gdm3

    Is anyone here using Gnome Staging PPA and the newest GDM3_3.25.90?
    Does that work with you?

    I have enabled that PPA (artful), but I cannot upgrade gdm3 nor gnome-desktop3:

    1. Gdm3_3.25.90 stops at tty1 with a desktop background (not the usual grey bg) but with no login window.
    The official version 3.24.2 is fine.

    2. Gnome-desktop3_3.25.90 is broken with thumbnailer (thumbnailer crashes), so nautilus does not show any thumbnails. (LP: #1709164)
    Again the official version 3.24.2 is fine.

    I have used it in two installations both worked for a while, but crashed later after upgrades. In one system I couldn't login. It started with a "Gnome User". The other system didn't start the desktop environment. Both systems required re-installation.
    There were also problems with gnome-control-center.

    OK, pretty much the same kind of an experience that I had.
    After unsuccessful starting, I did login manually from tty7, and downgraded gdm3 to the official 3.24.2 version.
    No need to any re-installations.

    gdm3 should be fixed now. Sorry about that.

    The gnome-desktop3 thumbnailer is a known issue: please read the debian/changelog if you want more information about that.

    Thanks Jeremy.
    Yes confirming the gdm3_3.25.90-0ubuntu0~artful2 works well.

    And yes I know the thumbnailer crash issue.

    Rrnbtter,
    I think the 3.24.3 in your pasted text means the gnome-shell version, not that of the gdm3.

    Greetings,
    @harry332: Yes,
    rrnbtter@rrnbtter-110-15ISK:~$ apt-show-versions gdm3
    gdm3:amd64/artful 3.24.2-1ubuntu9 uptodate
    gdm3:i386 not installed

    Thanks, I will get this sooner or later..... or not!

    Everything looks up to date now, even nautilus. Only some libraries like gdk-pixbuf or gegl are missing...
