Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, thanks for attention!
I moved all .new files over olds. Yesterday i removed the directory /var/run/dbus/Desktop and the worrning disappeared May be this is one of changes in dbus since 12.1, now i have not such of directory.
What I'd be wanting to know is how that directory got there at all. It appears that you've actually logged in as the "messagebus" user and started a desktop environment, which created the Desktop directory. If that's the case, I think the best answer I can give is "you're doing it wrong."
Well, rworkman! I never been logget as messagebus user. In that directory "/var/run/dbus" the only things now are dbus.pid and system_bus_socket=. Previously there was the directory Desktop, which was empty. I don't see there a directory related to any user.
ls -a /var/run/dbus
./ ../ dbus.pid .gnome-desktop/ system_bus_socket=
this is. I have ".gnome-desktop" directory from some time that i see. I had gnome-slacky and some parts of gnome installed to use some applications from there. May be these dirs was related to desktop menagers. Is it possible the "Desktop" directory been placed there from old KDE?
