Budgie Desktop Settings Not Opening

When I click on the Desktop Setting icon, the app won’t open and finally logs me out of the system.

Restarting UB didn’t help.

I tried to open the settings window from the terminal (sudo budgie-desktop-settings) and get the following output:

** (process:1754): WARNING **: 08:38:15.029: budgie-desktop-settings.vala:27: Failed to launch settings UI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.budgie_desktop.Panel was not provided by any .service files

budgie-desktop-settings should not be run as sudo.

What version of ubuntu budgie are you using?

Please can you reinstall budgie to check if all the dependencies are ok:

sudo apt install --reinstall ubuntu-budgie-desktop budgie-desktop-environment budgie-desktop budgie-core gir1.2-budgie-1.0 libbudgie-plugin0 libbudgie-private0 libbudgietheme0 libraven0

Then logout and login.

I ran sudo, because budgie-desktop-settings wouldn’t return anything.

But the listed commands solved the issue.

Many thanks for your, as always, swift and professional help. :slight_smile:

Side note : you shall never use sudo to launch any « graphical » program. Never. This may corrupt permissions on files used by your « graphical » session to run.

sudo → only for programs in command lines, in terminal or console.

many thanks for clarifying … :slight_smile:
