Fought with my F27 Workstation to upgrade to F28. After I deal with the fact that I have to create a new user even though my old one definitely still exists, I manage to log into my desktop. I’m blind, so I need Orca, which means I can’t use Wayland because it has some issues interacting with Orca. I notice those issues are present, so I try logging back out and then in, but setting my session to GNOME Xorg.
Whenever I change my session and enter my correct credentials, I find myself back at the username prompt. If I leave the session alone, I get what I assume to be the Wayland session (assumed because I observe the Orca Wayland issues.) I assume that, because login doesn’t work and because I’m not given an “incorrect username or password” message, that the failure is happening as a result of me trying to change the session.
Is the Xorg session non-functional on F28? I’m very limited in what debugging I can do on this, since the only accessibility I have is post-login, and that is going to be severely limited if I’m stuck on Wayland. Were the necessary packages to run the Xorg session not layerd into the F28 ostree? If so, that makes Silverblue inaccessible, and I’ll have to switch back to the standard workstation.
Thanks for any help.
