Description Christian Koren 2016-08-08 18:43:33 UTC
Description of problem:
cinnamon-session fails to start, goes into fallback mode

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cinnamon-session-3.0.1-3.fc24

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log on to a cinnamon session.

Actual results: 
Cinnamon goes into fallback mode immediately.

Expected results:
Normal cinnamon mode.

Additional info:
(From messages log)
cinnamon-session[3358]: WARNING: t+0,85514s: Failed to start app: Unable to start application: Error while running a subprocess «/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.ui» (No such file or directory)

The directory /usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/
does not exist and I don't think it should exist in this version and system.
I guess it might be a regression bug as 
/usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.ui
was a valid filename in some previous cinnamon versions.
My system has this file in the /usr/share/ directory (/usr/share/cinnamon/cinnamon-settings/cinnamon-settings.ui does exist).

My system was updated fc21 -> fc24 recently but cinnamon seemed to work flawlessly until the last upgrade rmps was installed a few days ago (the same day they were available in repo).
