Msm_notifier; Access error when saving your notification settings


I keep getting new kernel notifications and I wanted to disable it. When I go to click apply, I get an access error. I’ve tried running it as sudo however it tries to do notification settings for the root user. Maybe this is a Manjaro bug? Not sure.

Running the msm_notifier --settings command in terminal and trying to change settings. When I hit apply I get the following.

Access error when saving your notifications settings
qt.qpa.xcb: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 935, resource id: 10501122, major code: 40 (TranslateCoords), minor code: 0

Thanks. :vulcan_salute:

As a temporary solution I removed the autostart .desktop file from /etc/xdg/autostart/. Copied it to my home directory until a fix is implemented or mentioned.


I still have this issue. Obviously something with permissions I screwed up somewhere. Not sure how to fix it. Kvantum won’t change themes in it’s application. I had to go to its config file and change it there.

The issue was permissions. I moved over some config files from my old install and they only had root permissions.
