Description (last modified by ros)

Hi HelpDesk,

When I'm opening Gedit on ARCHER I get this error message:

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-NvFotD25h8: Connection refused)

It only seems to appear whenever I have more than one login session open. It appears others have had this issue before ( It's more annoying than anything, so any help would be appreciated.
