gnome-settings-daemon suse 11.1

Code:

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 Bonobo, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.

This message i get everytime i open the theme selector, the application
seem to open and work fine, I can change theme, background, fonts, but
when i try to change the themes colour nothing happends.

This problem is up since i installed the ati driver, but i’m not sure
this could cause the problem.

Hi
I would say it’s those kde4 processes that are running as indicated in
the error.

Hi
So the error doesn’t appear from the CLI… I get those same warnings
from the CLI, but don’t see your error. So you have both KDE4 and Gnome
installed? What is your default to start in, if it’s KDE, try starting
into Gnome first and see if you get the same error.

Hi
If there is a .kde and .kde4 directory in your home directory. Move
them and logout/login;


mv .kde .old_kde
mv .kde4 .old_kde4

I’m thinking there maybe some old cache info causing issues…

Problem is solved today somehow. As i remember i was remove
gstreamer-plugins-bad, added gnome repository and update some packages,
and do some setup with pulse audio. I don’t know what was cause the
problem with gnome-settings-daemon. But my desktop looks mutch better
right now. :slight_smile:
