After providing password there is a blank screen for few seconds and then it goes back to the login screen with no message. This happens since ugrade to Fedora28 and it happens approx. every 3-5 login attempts.

I upgraded from Fedora27 to fedora28 via dnf.

I checked following topics, but does not find the answer.

  1. Fedora 28 login loop

    I don't have any Gnome Shell Extension in my $HOME.

  2. Bug 1573683 - Can't login to Desktop after upgrade to Fedora 28

    I can confirm that I have: "Unrecoverable failure in required component org.gnome.Shell.desktop"

    message in the log every time the login attempt fails.

However I don't know what to do with it.

System config: Fedora28 Workstation, x8664, Kernel: 4.17.17-200.fc28.x8664

I have following Gnome Shell Extension in the /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions:

alternate-tab@gnome-shell-extensions.... apps-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gcam... launch-new-instance@gnome-shell-exten... places-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gc... window-list@gnome-shell-extensions.gc...

Thank you, Juraj

Thanks nisankh. I tried that and it "somewhat" helped. Login fails occurs much less than before. I tried several tens of time and approx. 10% failed. I don't like this statistical approach for something like login attempts, but it is acceptable. Moreover I found that it happened almost always to just one user, so it might be some other issue as well.

BTW, links you sent is this one: This link
