logout reports error with xfce 4.12

Hi experts,

I am having trouble logout from my session using logout button or using command "xfce4-session-logout --logout", it pops up a window says:

Unable to contact D-Bus session bus
Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-****, Connection refused

Any clue on this issue?


Thanks.

Re: logout reports error with xfce 4.12

Are you using Arch Linux? Sounds similar to this bug...

Thanks.

Just to add to alcornoqui's reply and link to the Debian bug report...
How do you start Xfce?

If you use a dispaly manager, which one and which version?
If not, what does your .xinitrc or X startup look like?

Re: logout reports error with xfce 4.12

I use a script to call /etc/X11/Xsession to start the session. Didnt change anything in the script.

And when I use /usr/bin/dbus-send --print-reply --system --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.login1/ org.freedesktop.login1.Manager.ReleaseSession, it reports:
dbus[479]: [system] Rejected send message, 2 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.985" (uid=16777216 pid=11874 comm="login -display :440 ") interface="org.freedesktop.login1.Manager" member="ReleaseSession" error name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="org.freedesktop.login1" (uid=0 pid=421 comm="/lib/systemd/systemd-logind ")

Try starting Xfce via "startx" and the following ~/.xinitrc file:

#!/bin/sh

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ] ; then
 for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/?*.sh ; do
  [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
 done
 unset f
fi

exec startxfce4

sorry for the very late response, been busy with my work. i tried your code, but during logging out, it reports another error:
Could not get owner of name 'org.xfce,SessionManager': no such name.

Re: logout reports error with xfce 4.12

Something is wrong with your dbus setup.

Which version of Xfce are you running:

xfce4-about -V

Re: logout reports error with xfce 4.12

To rule out a system issue, create a second user account on your system. Start Xfce using the command "startxfce4" and see if everything works properly.

Out of curiosity, why are you not using the display manager that comes with Pardus to login?

It would then appear that your issue is with the AD configuration.
