Can any one help me with the Gnome-tweak-tool can't launch

Well , I just installed gnome-tweak-tool using yum.


But when I tried to launch it in the terminal. it returns information below:

Two questions.
  1. Is GNOME-Shell running at all or are you running it in the fallback mode?
  2. Do you have dbus daemon running? I believe it is necessary to have that running for Shell.

Use sudo

I use Debian, but had the same issue when I was logged in as a user, and typed
Code:
$ su
# gnome-tweak-tool
in the Gnome terminal. However, with
Code:
 $sudo gnome-tweak-tool
all went fine.

Agreed. Same issue here until I set up a specific root account. Run it as sudo and you should be good to go.

But..

Why would you want to run gnome-tweak-tool as root user? It should be run as the user you wish to change the settings for. Unless you have made changes to allow root user to login to gnome shell, then you shouldn't be running gnome tweak tool as root.
