error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon


hi

I've done an Upgrade on Lenny with Gnome to Squeeze and now I'm getting each time this message:
Code:
There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.

Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.

The last error message was:

Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.
Howto solve it?

Welcome to the club...

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-error-743425/

There is no particular solution yet. I use the dalayed autologin option of gdm and it gets me past the error 9 out of 10 times.

It seems to be a BUG in gnome-settings-daemon.
Has someone already tried gnome-settings-daemon 2.26 from unstable?

I don't think this is something wise to do...

It's... out of my mind on how a tiny little component of DE depends on the new xorg! Ubuntu influences...

I went ahead and installed gnome-settings-daemon from unstable. It seems to work. My experience with this error has been that it has been intermittent on my machine, so I cannot tell you if it will work tomorrow, but for three or four reboots today there has been no error message.

Installing gnome-settings-daemon also installs gnome-session along with all the xorg stuff noted above. I already had the xorg stuff installed, so gnome-session and gnome-session-bin were the biggest changes. After this update compiz started on my machine at login (whereas I would prefer metacity to start on login and compiz to start when I specifically requested it to) so I've been trying different things to get metacity to start automatically. Those are the only side effects I can report, though your mileage may vary. If this change doesn't work tomorrow or in the near future I will post it to both threads.
