Description Vitaliy S 2006-11-14 07:16:57 EST
Description of problem:
When gnome session starts a window pop ups with error message:
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:
Unable to determine the address of the message bus (try 'man dbus-launch' and
'man dbus-daemon' for help)
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.

 the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based
authentication failed.

Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1

Comment 1 Vitaliy S 2006-11-20 07:29:18 EST
I found a solution people have same problem here
http://gnomesupport.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11865

download
dbus-x11-0.93-3.fc6
dbus-glib-0.70-4
dbus-0.93-3.fc6 
and rpm -Uvh dbus-* --force

The solution provided doesn't work for me
I still have same error message.
Comment 2 Anatoly Pugachev 2007-03-12 03:46:23 EDT
was having same error, fixed by installing dbus-x11 rpm package. you shouldn't 
use rpm --force to install packages, since it doesn't track package depencies. 
instead, remove that 3 packages you've installed and install them with yum -y 
install dbus-x11. hope that helps.

Hi,

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?

(this is a mass message)
