Gnome-shell: Failed to parse saved session file

I see the following error in my journal:

org.gnome.Shell.desktop[6022]: Window manager warning: Failed to parse saved session file: Datei »/var/lib/gdm/.config/mutter/sessions/101238a11fa21cfa165138963016161500000059380000.ms« konnte nicht geöffnet werden: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

The directory /var/lib/gdm/.config/mutter/ does not exist. And why should there be a saved session in /var/lib/gdm anyways?

It shows for me as well:

arch-gnome org.gnome.Shell.desktop[778]: Window manager warning: Failed to parse saved session file: Failed to open file “/var/lib/gdm/.config/mutter/sessions/10b6742ca1fbaae9ef16513912756950900000007700000.ms”: No such file or directory
:thought_balloon:
:thinking:

In dconf Editor:

Could it be the case that when one enables save sessions, then /var/lib/gdm/.config/mutter/sessions will be created?

Just wondering , I haven’t tried it myself.

It looks like a script check command that does not send errors to /dev/null.

I assume it’s not Gnome provided, probably some EnOS script for gnome?
Maybe check your autostart applications and local ~/.config/autostart/.

You would get Vanilla Gnome when choosing Gnome in the installer.
There is no EnOS Gnome Edition.
