Problems with GNOME settings Daemon


Occasionally i get this message when i have logged on

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:

Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-D7XXxqB1fJ: Connection refused

GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.

My computer works fine, except for the theme, it is not critical but still a bit anoying

when i check my xsessions-error i get the following

knudsen83@ubuntu:~$ more .xsession-errors
