In my Android-hosted Ubuntu 12.10 chroot, I am attempting to get gnome-shell running on Xvfb. I've handled rendering issues as far as I know, and now I'm having trouble with gnome-shell. I suspect D-Bus.

I've gotten D-Bus running in my chroot by using this special python-based replacement of upstart and running /etc/init.d/rcS, /etc/init.d/rc 2 and start upstart. X starts up swimmingly. AFAIK, these are the packages I installed with apt-get:

ubuntu-desktop
gnome-shell
Xvfb

Unfortunately, I've hit a roadblock. I don't know enough about D-Bus to get gnome-shell past this error:

I assume it's having trouble finding and executing some sort of service org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit. I assume I have some sort of configuration gone horribly awry. Are there any D-Bus gurus here that can help me?

The same problem occurs if I follow the same procedure with 12.10. The 13.04 part is irrelevant - although Ubuntu has stated 13.04 should be used for this situation. I need some help here - there's got to be somebody who understands dbus. –  Kupiakos Feb 23 '13 at 0:35
