Upon starting the xfce4 on Ubuntu 13.10, I always get the following message in the log:
Error creating proxy: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gtk.vfs.Daemon: Timeout was reached (g-io-error-quark, 24) (xfsettingsd:10814): GVFS_CRITICAL **: fill_mountable_info: assertion 'proxy != NULL` failed
It appears about 20 seconds after the login and it also appeared on the previous version 13.04. It's a minor issue, but it's sometimes irritating because it sometimes hangs the logout, for example if I have logged in as the wrong user.
Here is the output of the ps -ef | grep gvfs command:
10821 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd 10826 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs//gvfsd-fuse -f /run/user/1000/gvfs 10890 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-udisks2-volume-monitor 10899 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-afc-volume-monitor 10906 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor 10914 1 0 08:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-mtp-volume-monitor
How can this be solved?
Do you have overlay scrollbars activated? If yes, take a look at this bug report:
Yes, that's true! I just tried this on a new system and the very same thing happened after I tried to start xfce with the overlay scrollbar module. Thank you for your reply!
