I have a fresh install of Arch Linux using Gnome 3 as my Desktop Environment. I also installed nvidia proprietary drivers for my GTX 970. The problem i'm facing is that after my log-in screen pops up and i enter my credentials, it takes about 40 seconds to reach my desktop and during this "down time" my monitor enters a power saving state. I get to my desktop and if i open up a terminal and run
ps -e | grep -E "(gnome|gdm)", I get the following output
313 ? 00:00:00 gdm 434 ? 00:00:00 gdm-session-wor 437 tty1 00:00:00 gdm-x-session 454 tty1 00:00:00 gnome-session 470 tty1 00:00:00 gnome-settings- 490 tty1 00:00:01 gnome-shell 639 ? 00:00:00 gdm-session-wor 649 ? 00:00:00 gnome-keyring-d 663 tty2 00:00:00 gdm-x-session 670 tty2 00:00:00 gnome-session 696 tty2 00:00:00 gnome-settings- 742 tty2 00:00:12 gnome-shell 756 tty2 00:00:00 gnome-shell-cal 1165 tty2 00:00:00 gnome-terminal- 1168 tty2 00:00:00 gnome-pty-helpe
From this output I get that somehow, gnome-session starts up on 2 different ttys. If I switch to tty1, Same story as with logging in. My monitor goes to power saving, I wait aprox 40 seconds and then I get the login screen.
I have no idea where to start looking for the problem.
I installed gnome using
pacman -S gnome, chose the
mesa-libgl library and after i got to the desktop environment, i downloaded nvidia proprietary drivers, blacklisted nouveau and ran the .run nvidia file.
Has anyone encountered this situation? Do you have any idea what can I do? which log fiels should I open up or configs to change?
