/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256


Here is the problem:
/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256

Here are all the solutions I founded on the internet (NONE of them work):
rm -rf /var/tmp/rc_host_0
chown -rwx root:root /tmp
chmod 1777 /tmp
chmod 0755 /home
chmod a+rwx /tmp
chown -R root:root /var/lib/gdm
chmod -R 777 /var/lib/gdm
rm -rf /var/lib/gdm3/.*
rm -rf /var/lib/gdm/.*
rm -rf /Home Dir/UserName/.gcon*
rm -rf /Home Dir/UserName/.gnom*
rm -rf /Home Dir/UserName/.cache
rm -rf /Home Dir/UserName/.person*
touch /Home Dir/UserName/.personal.login
cat /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system
mkdir -p /usr/local/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.default
chmod 775 /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.system

Here is my system information:
Linux Kernel v2.6.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_64
CentOS 6.6
GNOME 2.28.2

I have been searching for an answer all week and found NONE.
Somebody, Anybody please help!!!

The only solution I found that works is deleting all the .files, but there's got to be a better way.

Run gconf-sanity-check-2 from the command line or a manual `startx` command.
For me, this gave me some output to the screen from /usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 which helped me track down the problem.

In my case, I had copied a .bash_profile from another machine and the TEMP environment variable was being set to an invalid path.
