D-BUS problem
 
my mint has been sooo buggy i don't know why i didn't upgrade i fresh installed maya. i should start another thread but you seem to always answer tobi so i'll just post this here if thats ok.

while i was editing fstab before i used nano i tried to gksu caja to do it in the gui for some reason and got the following error.
keep in mind this persisted through a reboot and also never did this before because i always ued gksu caja to get write permissions on my external hd w/ no issue. i see no d-bus daemon running why and how do i restart it. unrelated i was getting dbus issues connecting wireless w/ wicd on a diff OS the other day. is my hardware failing or is this all coincidence.

****note****
i can launch using "dbus-launch gksu caja" but why do i need to do it that way. just "gksu caja" gives following>>

Why don't you just start the d-bus daemon?

Code:

/etc/rc.d/rc.dbus start
