Using Arch X86-64 up to date. Gnome 3, with GDM. UFW works fine.
Logging in (GDM) gives 3 choices:
- Gnome classic
- Gnome with xorg
If I log in as using the option "Gnome with xorg" at GDM, GUFW works fine.
But, if I log in choosing either "Gnome" or "Gnome classic", GUFW will
not start. Instead, whether I click the gui icon, or do "gufw" or
"sudo gufw" in a terminal, the authentication dialog box appears
asking for the password. After entering the password, the dialog box
disappears, and nothing further happens.
This is regardless of whether I use Linux, Linux-lts, or Linux-grsec.
Fwiw, I do have net-tools and python-gobject both installed.
Python-gi does not seem to be in the repos.
If necessary, I can reboot into either Gnome or Gnome classic, try
GUFW again, and post whatever error messages would be helpful.
BTW, no other application program exhibit this behavior.
