Desktop-autostart issue after install to disk

i have the same exact problem. EXACT.
Did you find the way to fix yours ?

  1. I do not have multiple monitors.

  2. I have only onboard graphic card. I do not have NVIDIA GPU or somting.
    ( Motherboard : X10 Supermicro )

  3. module_blacklist=nouveau - do not work for me.

Hey Serg!

Sorry to disappoint you, but I never managed to solve this.
If you can, try extracting any data from your drive and reinstalling CL.
My issue was in a very early version of CL, so try loading the latest image for better luck.
I also think that the Nvidia docs for CL have been updated since my original post, so you should do better with a fresh install.

Hope that helps!

I am using fresh install clear-31230-live-desktop.

And i know what problem is, and know how to fix it.

If we use LIVE image - all boots nice.
If we install it on disk, it’s boots FIRST time nice - then we see black screen.

So something happens after first real boot.
Because 2nd boot , everything freeze on black screen with mouse pointer.

BUT if on first boot, we going to software and REMOVE ( uninstall ) desktop-autostart , we will be fine on 2nd boot, 3rd boot and so on…

BUT, on 2nd boot we will be entering “text mode” only.
After login all what we need it’s to start GUI by : “startx” comand, and we got our desktop on.

So, this is work around. And it’s only way to use Clear Linux for me and for you.

BUT …
“startx” command load GNOME Desktop only, there is no other “modules, and extras”.

There is no “dash to dock” thing , no “tweeeks” and e.t.c.

So my question is, how to start “startx” with all extras included, probably there will be some parameters entered along with “startx” , somting like “startx include everyting”…

I need help with it.

how to manualy start Clear Linux GNOME Desktop with all extras included ?

If we install Clean Linux Desktop version - we got nice GNOME Desktop thing.
With “Dash to Docks” icons, with “Tweeks” and everything.
With nice black bar on top of desktop.

BUT

If we install Clear Linux Server, and then install “Desktop bundle” and then run “startx” command, we will got only “basic” GNOME Desktop.
White ( not black ) bar on top.
There is no “Dash to docks”, no “activities” no “tweeks” …

It’s look like “startx” command run only basic Desktop , and my question is -

how to start GNOME Desktop from command line with ALL extrass, extensions and e.t.c.

Thank you.

@Serg_NewJersey I split your posts and merged out into a new topic to be easier to track since they sound like a separate issues, just with similar symptoms.

startx /usr/bin/gnome-session
