When running setroubleshootd in fedora, I get this error:

org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Connection ":1.79" is not allowed
to own the service "org.fedoraProject.Setroubleshootd" due to security  
policies in the configuration file

Now I know this has something to do with the dbus policy, either in /etc/dbus-1/system.conf or a file in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ or in /etc/dbus-1/session.conf or a file in /etc/dbus-1/session.d/*

But I have no idea what exactly the problem is, what file I need to look at. what policy I need to modify or how I am suposed to modify it.

Since Fedora 11, setroubleshootd is not supposed to be running in the background:

setroubleshootd is now a dbus service. It is supposed to be started when and AVC arrives or you start the sealert browser. It dies 10 seconds after the last connection/AVC arrival.

If you don't get desktop notifications, there might be other problem than the setroubleshootd not running all the time.
