OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Open ConsoleKit Session: Unable To Open Session

Apr 11, 2010

The following message comes up when I boot up: Logging in user Warning: Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 0. When I press OK, the system completes the start up and everything looks normal. But when I try to connect to internet, I get the following message:

KNetworkManager cannot start because the installation is misconfigured. System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings; contact your system administrator or distribution. KNetworkManager will not start automatically in future. If I reboot the system, I logg in successfully. So far the problem has appeared approximately upon every second time I boot up. Rebooting the system seems to take care of it.

Don't know what info is of interest. I'm using

Opensuse 11.2
KDE 4.4.2 (Factory)
After upgrade from 4.4.1 to 4.4.2 it worked fine for a week or so.

Slackware :: 13.1 Beta1 - Cannot Open ConsoleKit Session - Unable To Open Session

May 13, 2010

I do a clean install of slackware64 13.1 beta1 with KDE and switch default runlevel to 4 in /etc/inittab.

I try to login in kdm, I always come back to the login....

I try this with default runlevel 3 and an .xinitrc with "ck-launch-session startkde" .. works without problems, so I switch back to default runlevel 4, now i can login and only get the error "Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session..."

Here are some logs

org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit was not provided by any .service files."

After acknowledging the error, it resets back to the login manager screen. If I login with root, I get the same message, but it continues on and logins into the session

Fedora :: Cannot Open ConsoleKit Session

Oct 31, 2010

My Fedora 12 box got that error after some updates on it.

I can login but it's prompting that error and everything will be a black space.

But still no good.

According to the log messages, the ConsoleKit session isn't initializing. I can't paste the logs here coz it's on another laptop.

I could think of just upgrading it to Fedora 13 but there's no way I can backup all of my files on it. Is it just safe to upgrade it?

Fedora :: Unable To Open The Session

Feb 1, 2010

Just installed Fedora 12 on a P4 IBM. Everything installed fine. Then, I rebooted, installed updates, and installed a few simple programs (emacs, ssh server). I rebooted since some kernel updates had been made. I can't login anymore. I get a brief message at GDM that says "unable to open session" after I enter my password. Root also doesn't work, but I figured out that root logins are disabled. I found something that recommended disabling selinux, so I reboot with selinux=0 parameter. That still didn't fix the problem, but did initiate selinux to re-label everything on the next boot.

My next thought was that maybe my password got corrupted, so I went into single usermode. I ran passwd justin, so I know that my password is correct. I still can't login via GDM or on a tty.

EDIT: I was also thinking I might need to uninstall something that I did; however, networking is disabled in single usermode, and if I init 3, then I get a login prompt that I can't open. Is there a way that I can enable root login? That might be a starting point to see if it's my user account or a general login problem.

Software :: Unable To Make Ptpcam Working - ERROR: Could Not Open Session

Jun 25, 2010

After finally getting libptp2 to compile I find that ptpcam does not work. This has worked perfectly fine before with the same camera using Slackware 12.0, I am now using Slackware 13.1 and ptpcam will simply not work. The error is as follows:


x86_1# ptpcam -l
Listing devices...
bus/dev vendorID/prodID device model
ERROR: Could not open session!
Try to reset the camera.

I have tried to reset with "ptpcam -r", I have also tried to disconnect and reconnect the camera to the USB system, I have tried to reboot the computer, I have tried to use different versions of libptp2 -- all to no avail. The strace shows the issue is apparently a failed ioctl(), although I have no idea why it fails:


open("/dev/bus/usb/002/004", O_RDWR) = 6
write(4, "1"..., 1) = 1
read(3, "1"..., 1) = 1


I have verified that the camera is working in Windows 7 on the same physical computer and I can see the camera from lsusb and dmesg output when I connect it to the USB system. This system is Slackware 13.1, Linux x86_1 #2 SMP Wed May 12 22:47:36 CDT 2010 i686 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux.

Software :: Using 'at' To Open A 'screen' Session?

Mar 8, 2011

when I type:


After the command has run (verified with atq) I cannot attach to screen using "screen -r" and ps shows screen is not running:


why the 'at' command can't start screen in the background for me to attach to later?

Noticed screen is actually returning "Must be connected to a terminal." to logs. Does 'at' not provide a terminal?

Ubuntu Servers :: Keeping A Ssh Session Open Forever?

Mar 27, 2010

I stream my local police station dispatch on the web using an icecast/darkice configuration [URL]. The downside of using this software is that once you initiate darkice, a terminal has to be open - the process does not run in the background.

I tried placing a monitor on my server (ouch, that hurt) and keeping darkice alive that way, but my mail server kicks the process. Now, I set the KeepAlive variable to something outrageous and keep an ssh session open on my desktop box to keep the stream going. Screen does not work as Postfix boots that as well.

keeping the process going indefinately?

Applications :: VirtualBox - Failed To Open A Session For The Virtual Machine

Apr 8, 2010

I'am using gentoo linux. After some system's updates VirtualBox stoped loading any virtual machine with error:

Code: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine. Virtual machine has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {99404f50-dd10-40d3-889b-dd2f79f1e95e} Kernel log


So, i've rebuilded all VirtualBox dependencies with safe flags, then i've recompiled most of the sys-* packages also with safe flags. However VirtualBox still doesn't work.

UPD: virtualbox-bin-3.1.4

UPD2: 3.1.6 and ose-versions crashes with same errors

General :: FreeNX Can Access The Session That Open Locally On The Server

Sep 24, 2009

I just tried FreeNX. I work great. I am thinking about uninstalling the vino/vnc on my machine.

However, I'd like to know if FreeNX can access the session that open locally on the server. I tried session 0 and 1, none of them can access the local session.

For default vnc, the connection will let you access the local session on the server. Can FreeNX do that?

Slackware :: Telinit 4 - Kdm - Open Console Session Prevents Shutdown - 64 13.37

Jun 4, 2011

I have a question regarding runlevels, shutdown procedure and KDM. I am on a freshly installed Slackware64 13.37 multilib system. The default runlevel in /etc/inittab is set to 3: multiuser w/o X.

Now, I log in as root and issue the command:


As expected, KDM starts up, and I log in to KDE (or another WM/DE) as a normal users. When I am finished, I either issues


In Konsole or click on Shutdown in the KDE menu. The shutdown process is initiated, as expected, but then it stops, and a window alerts me, that there is a session open by user 'root'. If I click OK, the machine is finally shut down.

Now, if I interpret this correctly, the behaviour of Slackware64 13.37 has changed here, compared to 13.1. In previous versions, the root seesion was closed, when I changed the runlevel to 4 with the telinit command. Now, the session remains open, obviously.

My question is: Is this the correct behaviour, and isn't this a security whole? An unnoticed (!) open root session while I am surfing the web as an unprivileged user in KDE could be dangerous, I think...

Is it misconfiguration in my system, or is this the way it should be?

General :: Ubuntu - Wmctrl Cannot Open Display When Session Initiated Via Ssh+screen

Sep 20, 2010

I'm using wmctrl on an Ubuntu machine to manage windows from a script, that I run inside a (gnu) screen.

If I start the screen session from the local machine, wmctrl works fine, including if I completely close the terminal window and issue the wmctrl commands when connecting to the screen remotely via ssh.
Conversely, if I connect remotely with ssh and start a screen, wmctrl doesn't work (returns "Cannot open display") even if I attach that screen session locally from the Ubuntu Terminal.

I guess there is some hidden screen parameter that doesn't get set in a way that allows accessing the display when it's launched remotely -- any ideas what it is and how to modify it from within a remote ssh-screen session so that that the script can access the windows?
