Default gnome-settings-daemon error

Hello,
I'm getting an error message from the gnome-settings-daemon when I log in, and the desktop takes more time than usual to appear.
Running Lenny 5.0 with Gnome 2.22.3

The error message is:
"There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.

Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.


The last error message was:

Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.


GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in."


In the .xsession-errors there's a part where to warnings that could be relevant are shown:

Window manager warning: Failed to read saved session file /home/juan/.metacity/sessions/default0.ms: Failed to open file '/home/juan/.metacity/sessions/default0.ms': No such file or directory

and

** (gnome-settings-daemon:7677): WARNING **: Failed to open file '/etc/gnome/config/General.ad': No such file or directory


If I run 'gnome-settings-daemon --debug --no-daemon' I get the following:

** (gnome-settings-daemon:9367): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.SettingsDaemon

** (gnome-settings-daemon:9367): WARNING **: Could not acquire name
** (gnome-settings-daemon:9367): DEBUG: SettingsDaemon finished


There's a bug report that speaks of this but there's no conclusion yet about it: bug #473409:�http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=473409


Anyone is having the same issue �/ knows the way to solve it?



Thanks in advance,Juan.

Looks like a never-ending bug:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=485751

Still not solved/fixed/closed ;-(

Do you experience the same behaviour while login with another fresh-newly
created user?

Default gnome-settings-daemon error

Hello,
Thanks for the answer.
I tried creating a new user account and the problem doen't happen.
The same messages in .xsession-errors are there though, so they might not be related to it?...

I guess I could just do this and change to this new account, but I'll play a little more with it before I start moving documents and changing permissions, because I feel it's a matter of time before it happens again.

Thanks,Juan

While logged on to the new account, or logged in at the console, try
deleting or moving the directories ~/.gconf and ~/.gnome* in the old
account. You will lose various gnome customisations, but it may also
solve the problems you are having, without the need to migrate everything
to a new account.

Default gnome-settings-daemon error

Hello,
That worked perfectly!
Luckily I didn't lose too much, in a couple of minutes I had it configured again.
Thanks,Juan
