I just did an upgrade last night to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It seems there is a problem and it would be great to fix it. Also it seems this is preveniting Wallsh (desktop wallpaper changer) from working.

I keep getting the following error message:


Desktop manager is not active

This bug has been reported previously. The bug report is available here

The link also mentions a few possible solutions. The one that worked for me uninstalling pcmanfm completely and reinstalling.
