GNOME Daemon Settings Failed to Execute

Asked By 810 points N/A Posted on -

Hello all,

Today when I start my pc, I got the following error.

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.
The last error message was:
Failed to execute /usr/libexec/gnomre-settings-daemon: 27 (File too large)
GNOME will still try to restart the Settings Daemon next time you log in.

I am using Ubuntu 7.04 version,and my computer is Pentium III 933 MHz and 512 MB of RAM.

I was using Ubuntu since last 5 months, and it was working just fine enough.

When I log in, the screen goes showing a blank wallpaper like back ground for around 4 -5 minutes with the hard disk activity light goes on showing that Ubuntu is doing something with the hard disk (reading or writing). After so much waiting, it gives the above mentioned error.

Kindly help me, as I am unable to use my personal computer.

GNOME Daemon Settings Failed to Execute


To MLofer:

This means that the file is too large and is taking a lot of space on your computer. Try to check CPU usage if it's taking more than 80%. Uninstall the program, make sure that you remove all the files connected to it (includes the file on your Local Disk C: and any shortcuts. Restart the computer after uninstalling.
Check in your Currently Installed Programs list if it's still there. If not, reinstall the software. After reinstalling, restart your computer.
Try using the program again, check if it will still give you the same error. If same error appears, it might be that you have a lot of programs installed in your computer.
Check your systems specifications if your RAM can be upgraded to atleast 1GB. If not, then I'm sorry my friend but you need to change your computer to the latest one or one that will have a higher RAM and faster processor.
