Default Bug#633652: X-windows programs don't work anymore for root

Package: general

X-windows programs don't work anymore for root.

And whatever is making these messages sure doesn't give a clue as to
what package to reassign the bug to.

# emacs -Q #sometimes things work, (but only for a few minutes.) But mostly they don't start at all anymore:

These both sound like dbus misconfiguration to me. Does something as
simple as "xclock" work?

Ok. You really need to describe what sort of setup you are using before
it is possible to guess what could be wrong. Are you starting dbus
session bus at all?

I think so. I see its name here:
# pstree -A
init-+-acpid
|-atd
|-bash---xterm---su---bash---pstree
|-console-kit-dae---64*[{console-kit-da}]
|-cron
|-2*[dbus-daemon]
|-dbus-launch
|-dictd
|-exim4
|-getmail---sleep
|-getty
|-login---bash

| `-ssh-agent
|-ntpd
|-pdnsd---3*[{pdnsd}]
|-pppd
|-rsyslogd---3*[{rsyslogd}]
|-scim-helper-man
|-scim-launcher

|-smartd
|-udevd---2*[udevd]
|-wwwoffled
|-xterm---bash---emacs-+-aspell

`-z50apt-get---sleep

This bug started happening this month. And on all my computers.

This is probably your dbus system bus. It's hard to say since pstree
does not show what arguments were used.

reassign 633652 dbus
thanks

I'll leave it to the dbus maintainer to either close this bug or do
$whatever ;-)


Thanks & cheers!
