Failure to start gconf without dbus-x11 installed
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:41 EST
Description of problem:
If the dbus-x11 package is not installed, the gconf daemon cannot be started
when logging into gnome desktop. Without gconf, there are no user preferences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-session-2.15.92-1.fc6, however, I'm not sure if gnome-session is the right
package to required dbus-x11
This doesn't seem right to me.
1) gconfd-2 doesn't use dbus
2) it gets started automatically by libgconf--it doesn't need to be started manually
I'm guessing this is a gnome-settings-daemon problem. moving to control-center
No dbus-x11, so no dbus-launch, so no session bus, so no gnome-settings-daemon
(as it uses the session bus).
The control-center needs to depend on dbus-x11.
Fixed in control-center-2.18.0-16
