Having the same issue (haven't checked logs), but I imagine it's something to do with one of the dependencies - rolling back to 10.5-2 does not resolve the issue for me.

Not sure what exactly broke, but downgrading the packages that updated at the same time for me has fixed the issue (though who knows what other damage I've done by downgrading, so your mileage may vary). I went back to the previous local packages with:

---
DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=0 downgrade gnome-desktop gnome-session libgweather gnome-settings-daemon mutter cheese eog evolution-data-server libgdm gnome-shell gdm gnome-control-center gnome-font-viewer gnome-tweaks budgie-desktop evince file-roller folks gjs libgnomekbd gnome-screensaver pantheon-calendar
sudo pacman -Rsnu gnome-autoar
---

Technically, linux (5.2.14.arch2-1 -> 5.3.arch1-1) and openresolv (3.9.1-1 -> 3.9.2-1) were updated at the same time, but I doubted those to be related, so didn't downgrade them.

My workaround is to use cinnamon instead of budgie until this is fixed.

I've got the exact same problem but I'm just running GNOME.

One monitor shows "Oh no! Something has gone wrong" while I am using my web browser in the other. No Gnome utilities work though.

Downgrading the system to 2019-09-15 is my workaround for the time being.

Some comment from the Solus Budgie developers:

"These were moved out of GSD in 3.33.90+ and Budgie is already patched to not require those: https://github.com/solus-project/budgie-desktop/blob/master/src/session/meson.build#L57 Furthermore, gnome-session was already updated to reflect the GSD changes.
Not to mention we don't actually need those, we never utilize them in Budgie."

I stumbled on this issue while browsing the solus blog. Came here to see whats going on because as a longtime budgie / arch user I have not ran into this issue myself. Although I have been building budgie from source in order to use some patches. Compiling budgie master against 3.34 stack works without issue. But I tried the community package and indeed it crashes when starting x. Taking a look at the PKGBUILD it sources the commit for the budgie 10.5 release and then patches for compatibility with gnome 3.34 stack since those were merged only recently. In theory that should suffice, obviously that is not the case and something else is going on. If I get the time this evening I will investigate further.

You can use budgie-desktop-git in the meantime. I installed it instead of budgie-desktop and it doesn't suffer from the same bug.

In my case budgie-desktop-git did not solve the issue. The same crash is happening.
Comment by Andreas Erhard (andreas5232) - Sunday, 29 September 2019, 08:16 GMT
Same here. The AUR package budgie-desktop-git does not fix the issue. Unfortunately there seems to be no other workaround than using cinnamon for now, as downgrading is not an option for me.

I had this issue to. Even installing budgie-desktop-git did not work. Until I uninstalled gnome-shell and now budgie desktop works again on my system.
