Issue opening emacs & gedit

Dear CMS,

Having trouble opening emacs and gedit on ARCHER. When I attempt to open the software, I receive the following error messages:


GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See for information. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-jhxCTAHrhC: Connection refused)


libxcb: WARNING! Program tries to lock an already
locked connection,

which indicates a programming error.
There will be no further warnings about this issue.

Many thanks,
