Cinnamon Screensaver support not found in current theme - adding some...


Hi
I am using arch linux with Cinnamon Desktop. I have configured Cinnamon to autologin and autolock (simultanously) with the help of cinnamon-screensaver. It was working fine unitil few days back it stopped working (may be due to system upgrade or something else, I don't know). In order to check, when I issue command "cinnamon-screensaver" it gives following error:
Code:
[root@arch ~]# cinnamon-screensaver
Cannot acquire session org.freedesktop.DBus client to watch for media players
CsNotificationWatcher: Could not connect to session bus - Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch=5a72792892f74b30ba131173a0945ec6 --binary-syntax --close-stderr': Child process exited with code 1
Cinnamon Screensaver support not found in current theme - adding some...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/cinnamon-screensaver/cinnamon-screensaver-main.py", line 93, in <module>
    main = Main()
  File "/usr/share/cinnamon-screensaver/cinnamon-screensaver-main.py", line 43, in __init__
    ScreensaverService()
  File "/usr/share/cinnamon-screensaver/service.py", line 29, in __init__
    self.bus = Gio.bus_get_sync(Gio.BusType.SESSION)
GLib.Error: g-spawn-exit-error-quark: Error spawning command line 'dbus-launch --autolaunch=5a72792892f74b30ba131173a0945ec6 --binary-syntax --close-stderr': Child process exited with code 1 (1)
Upon search, I found cinnamon-screensaver code at github:
https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamo...nsaver-main.py
with following line:
Code:
 if ".csstage" not in css:
print("Cinnamon Screensaver support not found in current theme - adding some...")
Kindly help me to solve this problem.
Regards

It looks like a bug that you should report.

Ironically... after today's system upgrade, the problem is gone. One of the probabilities of using arch linux

for an arch user, a description like this just won't do.
are you sure you've actually installed archlinux, or rather something like antergos or manjaro???

also, are you running your GUI as root???

Yes, I am using arch linux with non-root GUI. The reason that I don't know the exact casue of peoblem is that I started to notice this after 2-3 days. So, I don't remember what exactly happened. However, in thouse 2-3 days, except system upgrade, I did not make any other change to system.
