Ticket #22272 (closed defect: worksforme)
dbus default of --without-x cause errors like "GConf error Failed to contact configuration server"

Description (last modified by macsforever2000@…) (diff)
This affects several applications, like file-roller (on Snow Leopard).

It has also been reported in the past and people have been rebuilding it with x but it is hard for the less savvy.
Here is a good reference to a similar problem and a proposed fix:
May I suggest you change the default?
I am not sure if one could get all applications affected to specify a variant (with-x) instead. I am not sure why the default is without X).
