    Default crash when changing theme

    Hello,

    when I want to change theme (control center-> apparence, I don't know the name of the application), gnome-settings-deamon crash. When I lauch "apparence" again, gnome-settings-daemon is restarted and it make X restart !

    The problem has come with the upgrade 11.2->11.3

    Here is the output of gnome-settings-daemon when it is restarted (when X crash)

    Code:
    ** (gnome-settings-daemon:16223): WARNING **: Can not run apport-checkreports
    
    
    (gnome-settings-daemon:16223): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: IA__g_object_notify: object class `GkbdStatus' has no property named `name'
    The application 'gnome-settings-daemon' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
    most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
    the application.
    Thanks for your help

    It's nothing to do with files, as in too many. But rather config files from the old setup.

    Decide if you want to try and remove the old config files, (difficult but we could try)
    or transfer your user files to your new user (when done, delete the old account)

    Not too sure what you mean but the default theme is Sonar
    Show us a screen of what you have and try and explain what you want/mean.
