I have been using Mint for about 6 months and prior to that was an Ubuntu user for a couple years. Recently I went away for a few days and when I came back I was getting several errors on booting and several things had screwed up. I have managed to fix my x server but am still getting a few errors when I boot which I have included in the screenshot. The only actual problem I can see as a result is being unable to access other partitions on my hard drive, everything else (including Compiz and Wine) is working fine.
The details of the errors all take the format:
Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://www.gnome.org/projects/gconf/ for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-0rWa9KdW37: Connection refused)
Any help would be appreciated.
