Hi,
I have found 1 problem with the new Gnome 3 installation.

When I try to start "File Manager" from the menu (when you click Activities and the applications) nothing happens
I do get a message in .xsession-errors: "Could not parse arguments: Unknown option --browser"

If I start nautilus from the terminal, it starts fine, no errors at all.

Anyone, know what is going on?
By the way, any way to look at the properties of the menu items?

Mons :?:

All the menu entries are stored in the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications/.
Maybe try "revdep-rebuild" and "emerge -1 nautilus" to make sure it's not just a linking error.

Thanks, tried both of those. No luck. Could old settings from gnome 2 interfere? Anyone else had this problem?

There are things missing on the Gnome 3 desktop. When trying to run the gnome-tweek-tool from command line I get:
ImportError: No module named gi

What is this Gi module?

I *think* it comes from dev-python/pygobject. Try to do an "emerge -1 dev-python/pygobject".

I think Gi means gobject-introspection.... is the introspection useflag set on your system?

Hi,
I didn't have introspetion, but setting it and "emerge -DNuva world" didn't change anything, also tried to re-emerge pygobject, that didn't change anything either.

One thing I wondered, was this: echo "-introspection" >> /etc/portage/profile/use.mask

Someone said I should set this when I first emerged Gnome3. So what does this do? Should it really be there at all?

It unmasks the introspection use flag. I think you need it for Gnome 3. I enabled it at least.

yes, the introspection use-flag needs to be set and unmasked for gnome3 :)

Partial success. Run python-updater and that now fixed the problem with running the gnome-tweek-tool.

The original problem is still there though:
Code:
Could not parse arguments: Unknown option --browser


The nautilus.desktop doesn't contain any --browser option, where does this come from? The error is in the .xsession-errors the main (messages) log has nothing.

Fixed the nautilus problem too.

One learning for other people with this or similar problems. It might be better to create a new user when migrating to Gnome 3. I eventually solved the problem with nautilus not starting from the applications menu by creating a new user and moving my files over. The old user carried too many old settings that ultimately got in the way.
