Bug Description

I am using Ubuntu 13.10, and have upgraded to Gnome 3.10 using the ppas. I have also installed synapse 0.2.10. However synapse crashes every time I start the application. The main search comes up for a second, and then crashes.

I have the same error here on ArchLinux

Solved by desinstalling gnome-weather and polari as their .desktop file uses "DBusActivable=true", which was leading to this error.

There may be a better solution but I was not using the apps anymore
