File manager and background problems

Hello

I'm new to XFCE

I have installed xcfe 4.2 on my gentoo system and then I have upgrade it to xfce 4.4.0
The problems I have now are the following:
1. When I go to the xcfe settings manager and choose File Manager I get the following error
Failed to open the File Manager Preferences
Either Xfce File Manager was not built with support
for D-BUS, or the D-BUS service was not installed properly

2. When I choose for Xfce to manage my desktop I get not colors on the desktop neither a picture

I have reinstalled the dbus package on my system, and still have no success

Does anybody know how to solve this issue ?

Re: File manager and background problems

I have found the solution
I have first tried to run from the command line xfdesktop and I have got an error about a missing library libdbus-1.so.2

I have then used

locate libdbus

to see where the libraries are installed

I have found in /usr/lib the library named libdbus-1.so  (I have installed dbus version 1.0.2)
so I have made a symbolic link

ln -s libdbus-1.so libdbus-1.so.2

and now everything is working perfectly  ;D

Re: File manager and background problems

Why is it a crapy distro ?
I use Gentoo and Slackware on my boxes, and I'm more then pleased with them.

Re: File manager and background problems

Ok mate I agree with that

But I would not call a distro crapy cause of that  smile

Anyways the problem is solved, the solution is posted, so maybe someone else can benefit from it.
