I'm also affected by this bug, however it has already been reported, so for now it's just a matter of time until it gets fixed :3

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

Thanks for the update from the mailing list.
I expect a fix coming on the way for this. Coz i definitely don't want to do a MALLOC_CHECK_=1 gnome-control-center in terminal for gnome-control-center.

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

I couldn´t start gnome-control-center and gnome-terminal too. How can I put the enviorment variable "MALLOC_CHECK_=1 gnome-control-center", while running the GNOME-desktop. If I set this enviroment on tty-Console nothing happens.

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

@tomgom:

1. you may install another terminal and try again

2. or you may add:

export MALLOC_CHECK_=1

in
~/.xprofile

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

MALLOC_CHECK_=1 seems just ok, though the system-settings can open, it still report some questions.

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

I had to do a reinstall of the Operating System and everything is fine now . Not sure which one fixed it. I assume its mutter.

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

I must say and report that since I've switched to systemd gnome-control-center works flawlessly and without having to use any work-around nor seeing any weird debug line.

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

Following a post at the gnome bug by a gnome-control-center developer noting that it was a problem through libcheese in the user accounts panel, I was able to skip this bug by either a) rebuilding the package with  --without-cheese or b) just disabling the fuill user accounts panel with

chmod 0 /usr/lib/control-center-1/panels/libuser-accounts.so

Re: [solved]gnome-control-center doesn't start

gnome-control-center 3.4.1.2 solves the issue.

Not really solved, gnome-control-center 3.4.1-2 is using the same workaround I provided above. But I'm glad it's in the repos without requiring manual patching.
