Bug - Error message on Boot Up with LiveCD

Postby RobK on Mon Jan 01, 2007 9:48 pm

When I boot up the LiveCD, I see the following error / warning message just before I see the Desktop:

"There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.
Some settings such as themes, sounds or background settings may not work correctly.

The last error message was:
Activation of org.gnome.settingsDaemon timed out.

Hmm... I see the blue theme and I hear sounds. Very strange message.

I am running Bea on an IBM T41 Thinkpad Laptop (with a P4 chip).

I do not see this message when using the Ubuntu Edgy Eft LiveCD. Why is Bea giving me this message?

Any ideas on what may be happening?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If it helps: I get that error when running Mint within Qemu... but not in VMWare, and not on my real computers... I guess it's some incompatibility with some of your hardware... the tricky thing that I don't understand is why doesn't Edgy do that as well...
