    Thunar doesn't work?


    I just installed a Fresh Gentoo System.
    I emerged Thunar and everything but when I am unable to start it.
    when I start Thunar I get:
    Code:
    process <NUMBER>: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid: Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id": No such file or directory
    See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
    <Here it says it cant make a backtrace since I compiled it wrong for that>
    Anyhow, is this a Kernel error or smething?

    Cheers,
    Robin

    ps.
    I did look in the man page..But that didnt help me a bit

    It does not seem like a problem with the kernel. The error message says its something to do with dbus. You could try emerging dbus again.

    Hi,

    Be sure to purge dbus' configuration files first as this is almost certainly a configuration issue. At least that's what's usually causing dbus to generate id numbers incorrectly.

    dbus-uuidgen generate a key uuid, the file /var/lib/dbus/machine-id must be have the key, in root type :
    dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id
