After literally 2 days of investigating this problem, I have come to the disturbing conclusion that the message "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." is deliberately displayed by Phosh. It comes from the command /usr/lib/gnome-session-failed, launched by the gnome-session-manager@phosh.service systemd user unit. And it seems to have the job of keeping the Phosh session opened while it is running, because if you close it, kill it or even prevent it from starting, Phosh just won't show up!

However, I have found a solution to prevent this message from being displayed while allowing the session to remain open:

  1. Rename /usr/lib/gnome-session-failed to /usr/lib/gnome-session-failed.bak

  2. Create a new file /usr/lib/gnome-session-failed containing the following code:

kill -STOP $$  # This command suspends the current process, preventing it from finishing.
  1. Make the file /usr/lib/gnome-session-failed executable.

Enjoy a fully functional Phosh experience!

I install this on x86_64 archlinux and get the:

[ Oh no! Something has gone wrong. ]

Screen. I don't think I'm missing any packages. How do I determine why that screen is showing?

Depends on phoc-git, libhandy-git instead of libhandy and makedepends xorgproto for now.
