    Rolling Kali - Logs me out when starting up terminal

    Hi guys,

    A noob here to forums, I hope I am posting where I should for my issue. I have always used the forums finding issues and solving without having to post as others have always helped me out. This time I can not find a similar issue.

    I have a fresh VMWare session of rolling kali.
    Linux kali 4.6.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.4-1kali1 (2016-07-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux

    everything starts up fine and I log in. The problem starts when I initiate a xterm session. This logs me out, kills my session and send me back to the gdm login.

    Has anyone witnessed the same event and is there a solution to this. I have been using the earlier kali 2.0 for some time without issues. I want to transition over to rolling kali and move forward.

    Any help would be helpful.

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    Restarted and now I get forced logouts when I try to launch anything including the terminal, anyway to fix this please?

    It has to be gnome related. It works fine until you do a dist-upgrade. probably issues with gnome package in the upgrade
    see first 2 on list

    I fink changing desktop environments would probably solve it. Try KDE/MATE/CINNAMON. If u don't know how to change ur desktop environment, Google has loads of tutorials for that. After Dat save it as d default environment.
