This may be due to something I have changed in my heavily modified system rather than this bug? But it just recently started. On this box which is my main one I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 using Metacity and Gnome flashback, Lately I have to use a different editor as I can no longer use Gedit from the terminal. I can however run it from the GUI menu, I just now tried to see. And It seems I no longer Have a zeitgeist directory so I suspect that is a good clue. I will fix mine, I just thought I should post this in case it helps someone.
"sudo gedit" returns: ** (gedit:6054): CRITICAL **: file log.c: line 980: unexpected error: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.zeitgeist.Engine: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program /usr/bin/zeitgeist-daemon: Success (g-dbus-error-quark, 23) -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1245589 Title: Doesn't run, reports a zeitgeist/dbus error To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gedit/+bug/1245589/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
