Today I had strange problems with Eclipse Luna after an Ubuntu Update.
The solution was changing the eclipse.ini by adding
and changing the memory settings.

Yesterday I upgraded my debian testing release (jessie) and after that the Gnome Desktop and also gdm3 (the Desktop Manager to login) was broken. I installed lightdm and xfce to get back a working desktop. But I can’t figure out whats going wrong until my last upgrade.
Finally I found help in this forum thread.
So I removed all the nvidia packages (I had no nvidia graphic card but a Intel HD3000)
apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
Next I reinsalled gdm3, gnome and reconfigured finally gdm3
apt-get --reinstall install gdm3
apt-get --reinstall install gnome
apt-get --reinstall install gnome-shell
After that procdure my system worked again!
I don’t understand why a dist-upgrade on a system with not nvidia graphic card leads into such a strange situation.
Corrupted /tmp folder
Additional I was affected from a corrupted /tmp folder which shows the wrong size. To solve this I found the following Blog Post.
- press ‘e’ during the grub boot loader
- add the following to the end of the line starting with /boot/vmlinuz…
–add rw init=/bin/bash
- press f10 to boot with that configuration – system will start in a bash
- remove and create the tmp folder
>rm -rf /tmp
>chmod 1777 /tmp
- reboot system
This helps me to create a new empty /tmp folder.
Yesterday I crashed my debian testing release (jessie) after I updated the system via
The reason was a dependency conflict between systemd and systemd-shim. systemd-shim is necessary for different packages including the gnome-shell. After a long time of searching the web and reading many politically discussions about pros and cons of systemd in general, I was finally able to solve my problem with the following trick:
1) I uninstalled system-shim (8-2)
apt-get remove systemd-shim
2) Downloaded version 8-1 from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/utopic/amd64/systemd-shim/8-1
3) installed the package ‘cgmanager’ manually
apt-get install cgmanager
4) installed the downloaded version 8-1 from commandline
dpkg -i systemd-shim_8-1_amd64.deb
5) installed the meta package ‘gnome’ again
apt-get install gnome
Now Gnome Shell is back again 🙂 Some conflicts are still there but I think this will be solved by updates in the next few days
With the latest release of Gnome Shell (3.8) you possible can run in a situation where your system did not shutdown correctly if you select shutdown from the system menu or try to shutdown with the hardware power-off switch. In this case just check if you have the new package ‘systemd-shim’ installed. This will possible solve a missing dependency in gnome.
Die Originaleinstellung der Schriften unter Gnome3 finde ich persönlich nicht ganz so schick wie jene die als Voreinstellung in Ubunt verwendet werden. Die Schriften sowie das sogenannte ‘Hinting’ lassen sich aber über das Gnome-Tweek-Tool schnell anpassen. Continue reading
