hi all i am wondering if anyone can help me with a problem i am having...i have a laptop with fedora 14 which i have recently installed gnome 3..i love gnome 3 and have had no issues until today...to provide as much detail as i can..i installed firefox 4 and removed the old 3.X version..did a general update that my computer showed me was available then i noticed the first problem..firefox 4 would not launch when i clicked it, it would only launch when i clicked the gnome 3 applications button and then clicked and dragged the firefox logo to the desktop, then it opened. the second problem i am now having which at the moment is more bothersome is that after i closed the lid to my laptop and opened it up again after a while and logged back in and noticed that the ENTIRE gnome 3 environment was gone..no panel no menu nothing just the desktop and a few desktop icons...i tried the command "yum install gnome-shell" but it just sed that gnome 2.31.5-7 .fc14.i686 was already installed so it wasnt gonna do anything, then i tried the "gnome-shell --replace" command and it just said
failed to load "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module no such file or directory
and it also said
"could not load library [/usr/lib/mutter/plugins/libgnome-shell.so (/usr/lib/libgjs.so.0: undefined symbol: JS_GetStringBytes)]
any help with this problem would be appreciated thanks
well actually i have been using linux for going on 3 years now, and i have successfully set up samba..(mainly thru the GUI as the smb.conf file still stumps me) lol.. i have also done remote desktop as well as successfully configuring nfs4 over the internet now i will add the security part to it since i understand the setup process well enough....in addition to all that i even figured out how to change the login screen background LOL i know these arent much compared to most linux users but i think its at the minimum PRETTY good and im not done learning i still do alotta reading and experimenting..i consider myself a newbie cuz i have never used linux in a business environment nor am i a programmer so thats why i label myself that way
