Description: My first bug report ever for Linux :) Gnome problem!
I just installed a fresh version of ArchLinux X86-64, and I'm using all testing packages with Pacman -Syu.
Yesterday, I installed gnome 3.4, and now I can't access the System Settings in the menu top right corner. When I click on it, I see it loading on the top menubar, but dissapears... If I try to change Date and Time settings from the clock top center, same thing. Network settings also. Seems like there's no way I can get to the gnome settings. It was working well with the latest stable version of Gnome before. I did not find anyone else having this problem.


Additional info:
Please just ask me if you need some outputs from the terminal, I don't know which one to give you. Newbie here :)


Steps to reproduce:
Install ArchLinux X86_64 on Toshiba L750D with all testing repositories on.

Confirmed on an nVidia-based laptop. Will post the output later when I turn it on, if relevant.

If using the nouveau driver it seems to be fixable by installing nouveau-dri.
I met this while trying to get fallback mode enabled. In gnome-shell all windows are either blue or transparent, so I unistalled nouveau-dri.

duplicate of  FS#29202 ... I did not see this, and now I managed to solve the problem by simply reverting Cheese. No need to log out or restart, worked immediately. Awesome!

I just needed to do this:
sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/[cheese-olderversion].pkg.tar.xz
...and I got my system settings back :)

How do I close a task?

Just wait for a developer to do that. We do not have the rights to.

Allright thanks a lot
