I am running Ubuntu 14.10, on top of standard unity/gnome I have installed Awesome Window Manager using this tutorial:


Awesome works, however because it's not a standard Ubuntu any more some bits are not working, notably when picking display/monitor settings from unity-control-center there is a an error message like that:

GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

My guess is that gnome-session is not running or some services related to gnome are not auto-started correctly.

I cannot change display settings, I cannot change keyboard settings.

Please advice what to do.
