You shouldn't have renamed the file this way, that folder, you should've saved that file locally on the device in MyDocs or on your computer.

Using terminal you should now delete that file using the command:

Code:
sudo gainroot
rm /usr/share/hildon-desktop/transitions.ini(original)
killall hildon-desktop
Now reboot your device.
wont that remove my original transition.ini i renamed to transitions.ini(original) though?

i need to delete transition.ini and rename transitions.in(original) to transitions.ini

sorry if im being dumb.

Yes, that's exactly what that command does.

Here is what you should try.

Code:
sudo gainroot
cd /usr/share/hildon-desktop/
mv transitions.ini(original)  /home/user/MyDocs
killall hildon-desktop
At this point your folder contains only the custom transitions file and with the kill command you can check if it works.

Now, if it's not working try this

Code:
sudo gainroot
cd /home/user/MyDocs
mv transitions.ini(original) transitions.ini
mv transitions.ini /usr/share/hildon-desktop/
The "MV" command in linux can move a file from a folder to another, but also renames the file in the same folder my overwriting.

I don't think that can be caused by this file. This file is not related to those. You maybe affected some other important files while installing this mod.

Please, can you post some screenshot for further assistance?

Awww damn... The "(" in your file name is causing the command line to give an syntax error. Sorry.

Type the filename as this

Code:
 transitions.ini\(original\)
This is a big problem I mostly encounter in PHP too, but I was too stupid not to observe it.

@elros34 was right.

I am going to do some reasearch on it, and I am going to try to fix this problem for you. I don't have an answer by now.

Okay, here, I did some research on this and this is my solution for your problem.

Start off by deleting all the thumbnails generated until now (maybe data corruption). You can find those files in this folder: /home/user/.thumbnails/fail/hildon-thumbnail/

After doing this please run the following command to regenerate all media information: tracker-processes -r

After doing that, please visit the folder: /home/user/.thumbnails/cropped/ and delete all the contents there.

Run the tracker-processes -r again and reboot.

This is the first solution. If this fails you:

Open X Terminal:

1. Type "cd .thumbnails/fail/" (without quotation)
2. Type "rm -rf hildon-thumbnail" (without quotation)
3. Reboot your n900


Run the tracker-processes -r again and reboot.

Please update me on your status after trying this.
