Comment (by Quozl):

 Summary: progress by adding ''gnome-shell'' and ''mesa-dri-drivers''

  * there were no systemd journal lines relating to the problem,
  * ''/usr/share/gnome-session/sessions/gnome.session'' configures required
 components ''gnome-shell'' and ''gnome-settings-daemon'',
  * by replacing ''/usr/libexec/gnome-session-failed'' with a script that
 calls ''/usr/bin/xterm'', it was found that ''gnome-settings-daemon''
 works fine, but that ''gnome-shell'' was missing from the system,
  * adding ''gnome-shell'' reveals the next failure:
 libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to open swrast (search paths /usr/lib/dri)
 libEGL warning: GLX: glXQueryVersion failed

 (gnome-shell:4508): Clutter-CRITICAL **: Unable to initialize Clutter:
 Failed to connected to any renderer due to constraints
 Window manager error: Unable to initialize Clutter.
  * adding ''mesa-dri-drivers'' reveals the next failure:
 Xlib:  extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0".
 Xlib:  extension "DPMS" missing on display ":0".

 (gnome-shell:5615): Gvc-WARNING **: Failed to connect context: OK

 Window manager warning: Log level 16: NOTE: Not using GLX TFP!

 Window manager warning: Log level 6: The program 'gnome-shell' received an
 X Window System error.
 This probably reflects a bug in the program.
 The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
   (Details: serial 1502 error_code 8 request_code 72 (core protocol)
 minor_code 0)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
    variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error()
  * enabling GDK_SYNCHRONIZE and ''ulimit -c unlimited'':
 The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
   (Details: serial 2959 error_code 8 request_code 72 (core protocol)
 minor_code 0)
  * resulting core dump shows backtrace:
