@marcinn I was also unable to get it working. :-/

marcinn commented on 2019-10-15 13:02

Does anybody got working AwesomeWM on Gnome 3.34, which is using systemd based sessions?

marcinn commented on 2019-10-11 01:10

After removing Clipboard and Mouse compontents, awesome session starts with a Gnome Shell instead of Awesome.

stas-t commented on 2019-09-20 11:04

Please, also remove these two from RequiredComponents in awesome.session:

  • org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Clipboard

  • org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Mouse

Otherwise after upgrading GNOME to 3.34 Awesome session will fail to start.

They've remove the org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.A11yKeyboard plugin, so that should be removed from awesome.session.

install file should be updated, as this throws error: [2018-02-19 21:29] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] sed: can't read /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-settings-daemon.desktop: No such file or directory

this file is now splitted and lives under: /etc/xdg/autostart/org.gnome/SettingsDaemon.*.desktop

see pacman -Ql gnome-settings-daemon | grep autostart

use something like: find /etc/xdg/autostart -name 'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.*.desktop' | xargs sed -i '/^OnlyShowIn=/s/GNOME;/GNOME;Awesome;/'

to make it work again.

@tiborg I fixed it. Sorry because I had just spent a long no computer times.

Hey, You've forgot to change awesome.session md5sum in your last commit.

Thanks @korylprince, I will update soon

They removed the Orientation and XRANDR gnome-settings-daemon plugins:

Current versions of gnome-session, gnome-settings-daemon, awesome and awesome-gnome don't work without removing org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.Orientation and org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.XRANDR from RequiredComponents.
