"undefined symbol: g_settings_backend_get_type" and was redirected here
A solution was suggested to remove gsettings-backend-dconf package by
"sudo rpm -ef gsettings-backend-dconf". I did not remove, just renamed
the package from "libdconfsettings.so.changeName" to
"libdconfsettings.so.changeName" at the directory

Then, I issued "startx" from terminal. The x-windows showed up.
Everything works like a charm.

Thanks for you guys help,


gsettings is in gnome3 not the default for SUSE 11? Are you running
openSUSE? Or did you add some additional stuff?
