Gnome-Shell --replace error.

Postby DelightedWalrus » Sun Nov 21, 2010 0:29

Hey all,

I've been trying to get Gnome-Shell working on Sabayon for a while now. I always run into the same error and then hop over to Fedora or Arch for a while until it gets fixed. What the problem is, is that every time I run gnome-shell --replace I run into this error:

Code: Select all
Failed to start shell
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-shell", line 422, in <module>
    shell = start_shell()
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-shell", line 158, in start_shell
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/", line 623, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/", line 1132, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

I did install gir-repository, and I installed pygtk to see if it would help since it keeps complaining about python.
Are there any suggestions on what to do, or what is going wrong?

Thanks! :)

Yeah, it should be filed under the ID of 1988.
