Getting this error seemingly randomly at login:
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:
Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.
I thought I might be logging in to fast, but it happened again when I had waited several minutes.
Setting up CentOS 5.5 on my laptop. After installing the synaptics driver, I am able to get a functioning X session without any problems (I'm using startx for testing). There are however two problems: 0/ mouse cursor is slow as snails and 1/ GNOME is fouled up.
- I've tried enabling SHMConfig in my xorg.conf file, and have also tried the HAL thing here. Either way synclient tells me to jump in a lack. I should be able to set suitable adjustments in xorg.conf, but running synclient -l to see what it's currently using would be much faster than hours of trial end error. As Google totally fails to provide anything helpful and I see nothing handy in documentation beyond the 1-line edit to xorg.conf I've already done, how in the universe do I actually enable SHMConfig to synclient's satisfaction? EDIT: scrolling doesn't work either, so access to synclient is even more important; on the upside I have manually tuned the mouse speed by T&E.
- GNOME was installed through the "GNOME Desktop Environment" and "GNOME Software Development" groups (yum groupinstall GNOME*) after net' installing CentOS. It has been startx'd through gnome-session. On startup I get a string of Windows: one is a dialog saying that there was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon with a last error message of "Failed to execute dbus-launch to autolaunch D-Bus session". The other two are dialog windows gripe about mail notification. Several icons are missing but gnome otherwise works fine, as long as I do nothing that requires SETTINGS. Searching the web and documentation hasn't helped here either, so how the flub do I fix that?
I expect to be using blackbox or something lighter most of the time, but as GNOME is the default.... it better be working!
The gnome-settings daemon was updated today on my Fedora 11 machine and it's now performing all kinds of interesting activities. It's using my CPU a ton. And it's generating lots of network traffic. This appears to be a massive bug of some sort. Anyone know any more details? I haven't found anything yet.
After I login my desktop preferences are not loaded. If I try to change them (Control cneter-> apparence) I get a message that says: Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with DBus, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.The first lines of .xsession-errors show:
/etc/X11/xim: Checking whether an input method should be started. HOSTNAME: Undefined variable. XDG_DATA_DIRS: Undefined variable.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a brand new HP EliteBook 8540w with an Nvidia card. To get the machine to work at all I have to use the proprietary nvidia driver. The downside is that when I use this driver gnome-settings-daemon seems to crash when I start the machine which results in a ugly theme. To fix this I have to run the following command:
Code: sudo gnome-settings-daemon
After this the theme is re-applied. If I try to run gnome-settings-daemon as my regular user I get the following messages:
Code: ** (gnome-settings-daemon:2187): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.SettingsDaemon ** (gnome-settings-daemon:2187): WARNING **: Could not acquire name
about every second time when I start up my Ubuntu 10.4, my hard drive starts to work heavily. While it's doing so I see in the system monitor that the gnome-settings-daemon has the status 'uninterruptible'. After about 3 minutes the hard drive calms down and the status of gnome-settings-daemon switches to 'sleeping'. so from that I guess the heavy working of the hard drive is somehow related to that process. Sometimes gnome-settings-daemon seems to crash completely so that my theme is gone.
So is there a solution to that? because it's annoying that it slows down the system for about 3 minutes after start up. On the net I've found some old threads from 2004 and 2006 which describe crashing of gnome-settings-daemon. But there didn't seem to be a solution.
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 and I am experiencing an ultra high memory usage of the gnome-settings-daemon of 2GB after suspend! Killing and restarting the daemon solves the issue. Anybody else with this behavior?

I was having a problem on my squid server whereby 1 website would timeout daily and return a nscd not found error: [url]....There may be other sites but this is the only one I know of. A selection of other sites still work correctly, which is the strange thing.I have found that by restarting the dns cache everything works again: /etc/init.d/nscd restart.I never know quite when this will timeout so it is not very good for people accessing that site on the server.
