Gnome gdm does not allow me to unlock

After updating to fedora 29, the first access works regularly. But as soon as I lock the session, I can no longer unlock it. This is because by pressing "enter" or by swiping up, gdm does not seem to respond. The shutdown menu at the top right, however, continues to work. This is rpm -qaV: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste... And this is journalctl -xe: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste...

This is a not-so-elegant workaround: Switch to another TTY (i.e., Ctrl-Alt-3), login and issue the following command: sudo loginctl unlock-sessions. Go back to your original screen (Ctrl-Alt-2) and the session should have been unlocked itself.

Have you tried to use Xorg for gdm? In /etc/gdm/custom.conf uncomment the line:

[daemon]
# Uncomment the line below to force the login screen to use Xorg
#WaylandEnable=false

Uncomment, that is, erase the # symbol as root.

Nope. Doesn't work.

You did reboot, of course. And how comes the answers all come from different users than the op?

Yes, of course I rebooted. And I don't really know.

Login in with Waylan (GNOME vs GNOME + Xorg) does seem to work without this issue.

Are you using the Drop Down Terminal extension? Remove it.
