open a unity session
open a terminal
open byobu in the terminal (screen mode)
launch gedit from the byobu

logoff the session

login same user
open a terminal
reattach byobu session

launch gedit

you will get this error :

(gnome-open:26848): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-8sFQqQulYt: Connection refused
GConf Error: No D-BUS daemon running

(gedit:26850): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: Could not open network socket

see your env :


are not good, because the dbus and the session -manager have changed.

Patch :
update the env ( in control-F5 ? )

export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-3sHR7ZwvNL,guid=e57a36b49ba7abc07e4d53b40002bb64
export SESSION_MANAGER=local/computer:@/tmp/.ICE-unix/23062,unix/computer:/tmp/.ICE-unix/23062
