After upgrading to
Gnome shell was totally borked for me.
If you clicked the “Show Applications” button in the lower left, the background faded out, running apps were reduced, everything looked normal. Until you tried to get back out of applications. Clicking Show Applications, mouse bumping the upper left corner, clicking on the BIG x on any of the Apps, nothing worked. The only way out of this was to log out.
Fortunately, after logging out then in, any thing in the dash panel would work. I had terminal on the panel and was able to downgrade back to versions 3.36.3-1 of the above mentioned packages. After reboot, all is back to normal.
Anyone else experiencing this?
