Exclamation Oh NO! a problem has ocurred... bla bla... Gnome Problems... Help please!

Hi!

Im still a noob on the Linux world (i bought "a practical guide to fedora and RHEL" by Mark Sobell, and I started experimenting yesterday.

The problem Im having is with Gnome. The "Oh No! a problem has ocurred" screen appears to me every time I log into the system.
After clicking the Log Out button, i go back to the login screen and now i can login succesfully.

To resume the problem:
1) I login with my password
2) Oh No! a problem has ocurred..... Screen
3) Go back to Log In screen.
4) Try to login again
5) Everything works now.


This just started to happen suddenly, after i installed the HPLIP driver. I dont know if that has something to do. However, i have completely removev all HPLIP files following the tutorial on hplip website and the problem persists.


Is there any way for me to see exactly what the problem is caused by? Like any LOG file or something?

Thanks in advance!

The log files are in /var/log. Also look at .xsession-errors in your home folder.

That's probably because you didn't enable 'Show hidden files'. Just press Ctrl+H and you should see it. In linux all files whose names begin with a period are hidden files

var/log stores a few kinds of records, you'd be wanting /var/log/messages.

Hi again.

Well, as i couldnt find any solution, i reinstalled the whole system.
Then installed the HPLIB (from the official website) and then the problem appeared again, so its definately a problem caused by HPLIB or by one of the extra packages it install during the installation.

Now, i have reinstalled everything (for third time) and everything works fine, except that i cant get my printer to work

Did you install the hplip drivers from Fedora or did you go web-browsing to HP.com? My HP printer works OK with the drivers that come with Fedora. The drivers themselves are surely the same, but Fedora's package might have a more successful installer.

I installed the drivers from the HP.com site, because the fedora's supported / official release doesnt recognize my printer, even when i see it listed when i do a lsusb

My printer, btw, is a Laserjet Professional P1102W, and im connecting it via USB (not wireless)

yes, without luck.

Btw, the the package I download (the fedora's supported one), is the hplip-gui
(yum install hplip-gui)
That is the correct package, isnt it?

Not sure. Mine installed the hp drivers when I added the printer. It picked drivers from the repos in the GUI.

http://hplipopensource.com/ (which is where I landed after clicking through for drivers on hp.com) is offering hplip version 3.11.12. That is the same version number that's in Fedora. It would be a surprise if one worked with your printer and the other didn't. But not impossible, as the Fedora hplip package additionally applies 30 patches. (You can inspect the patches by downloading the Fedora hplip srpm from, e.g., http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...1.fc16.src.rpm, and unpacking it.)
