Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

When I log into Gutsy, i get the following error message:

There was an error starting the GNOME Settings Daemon.

Some things, such as themes, sounds, or background settings may not work correctly.

The Settings Daemon restarted too many times.

GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.

When I start from a terminal, I get this:
[1190878581,000,xklavier.c:xkl_engine_start_listen/] The backend does not require manual layout management - but it is provided by the applicationCould not initialize GStreamer: Error re-scanning registry , child terminated by signal

The issue looks like a gstreamer0.10 one, reassigning

I had the same issue.

I did a 'sudo aptitude --purge reinstall' for all installed gstreamer* packages. That fixed it.

Dunno which of the packages is the responsible one.

Looks like a corrupted installation and not a package bug and that's fixed now, closing, feel free to reopen if you get the issue again though
