I recently switched a laptop over from Debian to Linux Mint 17.3 KDE Edition. After one too many glitches (for me) in the KDE environment, I decided to try Cinnamon by installing the mint-meta-cinnamon package and switching to it. A couple of problems showed up - for one, my ~/.dbus/ directory suddenly became owned by root, throwing lots of errors in the logs. Fixed that and eliminated the errors. Now, the only error left (in ~/.xsession-errors) is:
Code: Select all
** (nm-applet:3667): WARNING **: Could not create object for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Settings/1: uid 1000 has no permission to perform this operation ** (nm-applet:3667): WARNING **: handle_property_changed: failed to update property 'available-connections' of object type NMDeviceWifi. nm-applet-Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon
I have done the usual due diligence in searching for a solution, but have not yet found the necessary lead. Even reading the systemd and NetworkManager docs have not helped. Another clue - running nm-tool from the command line (as normal user) produces the same errors, while running as root produces no errors (as expected).
Perhaps another clue - my Dropbox daemon is running but I have no Dropbox icon in the system tray. This was working under KDE.
