    Thanks, stinkeye!

    I went to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications and added gnome-settings-daemon and now I'm happy.

    But something's stopping this from launching in the first place, isn't it? I've added the script to startup, and hopefully this will fix it, but shouldn't this have already been part of the startup scripts anyway?



    Either way, thanks for the fix dudes.

    Hey Stinkeye!
    That seems to REALLY do the trick! Thanks!

    Hmm, nice... I'll give this fix a try. But, as BigSilly pointed, this is more of a workaround than an fix. gnome-settings-daemon should be executed without user intervention and something is preventing it to happen. Finding out what it is and stopping this behaviour would be the actual fix.

    Unfortunately this fix hasn't worked for me. The following two reboots I did gave me the errors as before. In fact it's worse this time, as it seems to crash my Google Gadgets. On both reboots the gadgets disappeared on log in.

    I'm going to remove the script from start up and just wait for a fix from...well, whoever wants to fix it, as Canonical say it isn't their responsibility.

    I've been doing "logout" from the panel and then "shutdown" from the welcome screen. Things are much better.

    Annoyingly, I wrote this script as a workaround, and haven't yet had to use it in anger since using the "logout first" method. Here it is, FWIW:

    Code:
    #!/bin/dash
    #
    # Workaround for an annoying bug that loses the current theme.
    # http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10314526&postcount=66
    #
    
    pidof gnome-settings-daemon > /dev/null 2>&1
    if test $? -ne 0 ; then
        gnome-settings-daemon > /dev/null 2>&1
        pkill nautilus > /dev/null 2>&1
        pidof gnome-settings-daemon  # PID indicates success.
    fi
    
    #
    # Done.
    #
    It only does something if the daemon isn't running, what it does in that case is start the daemon, kill nautilus and print the PID of the newly started daemon as confirmation.

    What I'm thinking is that if you add a delay using sleep and stick this in your startup, then when everything looks normal, nothing happens, if things look ugly, this script will apply the fix.

    Thanks for that KJ, will give it a go. I'm still getting the problem here, and like you I am having to log out first before shutting down. What a pain!

    Great. The 'logging out and then logging in' thing isn't working any more. Whoop-de-doo.
