Ubuntu-Tweak doesn't have the option Startup which includes

  • Session Manager
  • Session Control and few other options are not there. I am running the latest version available to download. I remember having all those menus in lucid.

for a better difference comparison see the menus in the ubuntu tweak homepage http://ubuntu-tweak.com/ with mine....

alt text

how can I get these option back.

here is the error I get when I run Ubuntu Tweak from terminal

ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on :1.142:/com/ubuntu_tweak/daemon: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call", sender=":1.141" (uid=1000 pid=16550 comm="/usr/bin/python) interface="org.freedesktop.DBus.Introspectable" member="Introspect" error name="(unset)" requested_reply=0 destination=":1.142" (uid=0 pid=16560 comm="/usr/bin/python))

Update: I installed the same deb on another computer and that has nothing wrong. all the menus are listed fine.

In the latest version (0.5.7) the startup menu has been removed, since it was a duplicate feature of the GNOME Session application.

See the release notes:


Apart from that, you could try uninstalling ubuntu-tweak with

sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-tweak

reinstall, and see if it works.

Otherwise you should consider a bug report.


Figured out the problem, may be something wrong with the configuration files in the home folder's hidden files. Due to some other problem I had to empty my Home Folder and delete all the hidden files and after that Ubuntu Tweak is working fine with all the Options available.
