I have just installed Lubuntu on VM VirtrualBox.

When I run an app from terminal, eg. firefox, it works but terminal pops up some warnings.

maciex@maciex-pc:~$ firefox

(firefox:1152): Gtk-WARNING **: 16:15:43.300: Theme parsing error: <data>:1:34: Expected ')' in color definition

(firefox:1152): Gtk-WARNING **: 16:15:43.300: Theme parsing error: <data>:1:77: Expected ')' in color definition

(firefox:1152): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 16:15:43.426: g_dbus_proxy_new: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed

It's not about firefox, the same issue with other apps. But if I start the same app not from terminal and then open terminal and run the same app from terminal - I do not have any warnings.

Could someone explain it? How to solve it?

Thanks

    Is the dbus daemon running? Dec 25, 2018 at 14:21

    Well, I think so. I added a screen to my original post.

    Please don't push screenshot pictures; this makes it harder for people. Instead a cut'n'paste of the contents is preferred. Thanks! Dec 25, 2018 at 14:57
  • This is not an isolated case. Same symptoms here, trying to test hamster-time-tracker in an lubuntu-18.10 virtualbox. dbus-daemon is running.

As noticed by John Little (thanks !), this is related to fcitx

(hamster-cli:4440): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: 13:54:40.431: g_dbus_proxy_new: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed

sudo apt purge fcitx-module-dbus removed the symptom. Tested in lubuntu-18.10, default desktop (LXQt).

That's probably https://gitlab.com/fcitx/fcitx/issues/396.

  • This removed the error for 90% of the time. But I still get it occasionally. It is flaky.

    Do you mean it happens even without the module (so there would be another source for the same error), or that something is reinstalling it (to check: sudo apt list fcitx-module-dbus), which triggers the error again ?

  • Yes, it still happens. i.imgur.com/tF75sz5.png

    fcitx-module-dbus appear twice your list output. How to remove it properly should be found or asked on stackexchange askubuntu.

    Then another package generates the same symptom on your system. Hope you'll find which one !

I'm not an expert but in Synaptic I did re-install everything related to Glib and Fcitx and installed Fctix5 and fcitx-dbus-status and the error is gone for all my programs. Sometimes re-install and improve fixes bugs.

  • Welcome to the site, and thank you for your contribution. Would you mind explaining what you mean by "and improve" in "re-install and improve"?
