do you have gnome-settings-daemon running?

no :) (i use xfce4, from xubuntu jaunty upgraded to karmic with update-manager)
but i have selected in xfce4 stufff the 'launch gnome services" at startup. I guess it is supposed to do the right things.

when i launch the daemon (as user) i have the following messages :

----------------------------------------------------------------
~$ gnome-settings-daemon

(gnome-settings-daemon:8099): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_propagate_error: assertion `src != NULL' failed

(gnome-settings-daemon:8099): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_propagate_error: assertion `src != NULL' failed

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8099): WARNING **: You can only run one xsettings manager at a time; exiting

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8099): WARNING **: Unable to start xsettings manager: Could not initialize xsettings manager.

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8099): WARNING **: Grab failed for some keys, another application may already have access the them.

** (gnome-settings-daemon:8099): WARNING **: Clipboard manager is already running.

----------------------------------------------------------------
do this should be filled as a bug against xfce4-something for lack of gnome services ?

when the dameon is launched, the evince message disappears.

ok, it's an issue when using evince without GNOME, something upstream should probably handle better

@Sebastien

I see the same issue with totem in my lucid and with GNOME dm

I have a similar issue with evince in Lucid Server, basic X.org installation (no gnome desktop)
