Default Set Of gnome issues

I have installed gnome 2.6 on my netbsd 5 64 bit system using the pkgsrc's gnome meta pkg. I am facing certain issues with it:

1) Certain application like gnome 'keboard setting' gives a error message that
Code:
Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with Bonobo, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.
After showing the message the util starts up. When i try to run /usr/pkg/libexec/gnome-settings-daemon on the terminal I get the following error:
Code:
** (gnome-settings-daemon:1523): WARNING **: Failed to acquire org.gnome.SettingsDaemon

** (gnome-settings-daemon:1523): WARNING **: Could not acquire name
2) In the notification area on gnome panel all the icons are invisible, I know they are there because when I move my mouse over i can see the tool tip messages.

3) My user is currently added to users and wheel group, what all groups i need to add my user to so gnome work properly.

I'm going to take a wild guess that something(s) that should have been manually configured to execute have been missed. I don't run gnome and have only briefly played with NetBSD, but a quick check could be done fairly easily:
$ echo -n > /tmp/stuff ; for x in `pkg_info | awk '{print $1}'`
> do
> pkg_info -D $x >> /tmp/stuff
> done
$ less /tmp/stuff

I have every thing configured according to /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/gnome/MESSAGE:

Code:
===========================================================================
$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 1.6 2009/03/17 14:46:39 jmcneill Exp $

In order to get the GNOME Desktop running properly, you need to follow
these manual steps:

1) Enable the File Alteration Monitor.  See 'pkg_info -D fam' for more
   information.  If you chose to use gamin instead of fam, you do not need
   to take this step.

2) Enable the system dbus daemon.  In order to do that, copy the
   ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/dbus script to /etc/rc.d and add
   dbus=YES to your /etc/rc.conf file.

3) Enable the hal daemon if GNOME has been built with the hal option (the
   default).  In order to do that, copy the ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/hal
   script to /etc/rc.d and set hal=YES in your /etc/rc.conf file.

4) Enable the cups daemon if you installed it.  In order to do that, copy
   the ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/{cupsd,slpd} scripts to /etc/rc.d and
   set cupsd=YES and slpd=NO in your /etc/rc.conf file.

5) Set up the gnome-screensaver PAM service by creating the
   /etc/pam.d/gnome-screensaver file.  You can use one of the files
   in ${PREFIX}/share/examples/gnome-screensaver/pam.d as templates.

6) Optionally enable the Avahi DNS Service Discovery service if you
   installed it.  In order to do that, copy the
   ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/avahidaemon script to /etc/rc.d and set
   avahidaemon=YES in your /etc/rc.conf file.

7) Optionally enable GDM (highly recommended).  Just copy the
   ${PREFIX}/share/examples/rc.d/gdm script to /etc/rc.d and add
   gdm=YES to your /etc/rc.conf file.

===========================================================================
my rc.conf:
Code:
#	$NetBSD: rc.conf,v 1.96 2000/10/14 17:01:29 wiz Exp $
#
# see rc.conf(5) for more information.
#
# Use program=YES to enable program, NO to disable it. program_flags are
# passed to the program on the command line.
#

# Load the defaults in from /etc/defaults/rc.conf (if it's readable).
# These can be overridden below.
#
if [ -r /etc/defaults/rc.conf ]; then
	. /etc/defaults/rc.conf
fi

# If this is not set to YES, the system will drop into single-user mode.
#
rc_configured=YES

# Add local overrides below
#
wscons=YES
hostname="devils-workshop"
ifconfig_bge0=dhcp
powerd=YES
estd=YES
estd_flags="-d -s -m 800 -M 1867"
dbus=YES
hal=YES
rpcbind=YES
avahidaemon=YES
gdm=YES

If you want the complete set of messages produced by pkg_add(1) during some prior execution, you are out of luck, unless you manually logged your console output with script(1) or a similar tool prior to running pkg_add.

However, any MESSAGE text files built into the binary packages, that display during install, are retained in the /var/db/pkg hierarchy, and are retrievable with pkg_info(1)'s -D option. If you run the command sequence I gave you, above, you will see the output of pkg_info -D for every installed package. You can page through it -- less(1) is a pager -- looking for anything you inadvertantly missed, or, that the meta-package didn't document.

Disclaimer: I don't know if the meta-package documentation is complete or not. The command sequence will query every installed package, looking for install messages, whether the package is a gnome dependency or not.

The error messages that you've posted both involve the "gnome-settings-daemon." According to Google, that is a separate package: sysutils/gnome-settings-daemon.

Do you have it installed? I've looked in the pkgsrc tree, and it does not have a separate configuration message.

2.26.1 is the most recent version.

Time to wait for either a Gnome or a NetBSD person to reply, or see if the links provide some circumventions for you.

I've got the same problem (past issue) after the installation, but cannot specify which package resolved this .

Try with py-gnome and py-gnome-menus packages, as I remember there was some issue with them. Hope it helps.

thanks tom I rebuild the py-gnome2 and py-gnome-menus packages and now gnome settings daemon is working fine.
Now the only issue left is the notification invisible icons. I rebuild the gnome-applet package but the issue is still there. Is there any other package i need to 'make update'.
