I am using a Linux Mint 19 Tara and I installed the
gnome-tweaks-tool and when I tried to open it with
gnome-tweaks I encountered the following error:
WARNING : Shell not installed or running WARNING : Shell not running NoneType: None WARNING : Error detecting shell Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gtweak/tweak /tweak_group_shell_extensions.py", line 216, in __init__ raise Exception("Shell not running or DBus service not available") Exception: Shell not running or DBus service not available
I have uninstalled the package with
sudo apt-get --purge remove gnome-tweak-tool and re-installed it again with
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool but still I encounter this error. Despite the fact the gnome-tweaks application runs, the error persists and I am pretty sure this is the main cause why I cannot install the User themes from https://extensions.gnome.org/
because the following error appears:
Unable to locate GNOME Shell settings or version. Make sure it is installed and running.
In brief, I just want to know how to solve the
Shell not running or DBus service not available problem. Any suggestion, comment or contribution is greatly appreciated.
