Failed to start session


#1

(from #ubuntu-budgie irc, it’s quiet there)
After installing Wine from Software Centre, I got an error for unmet depencies, after reboot I can’t get to the desktop enviroment ‘Failed to start session’ , first thing google gave me was to ‘sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop’ from ctrl-alt-f1, Now I can login to Ubuntu and Ubuntu on Wayland, but not Budgie. Want my Budgie back :frowning: Running Ubuntu Budgie 18.10.

Sounds like something has accidentally been uninstalled

Try

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-budgie-desktop budgie-desktop budgie-core gnome-control-centre

#3

also worth trying

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

This is to confirm everything is fully up to date
