gnome-terminal Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal

hello guys, i cant launch the terminal.. i read in the forums that it might be cause of my locale...
i ran:

localectl set-locale LANG="en_US.UTF-8"

my locale.conf has

LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_US
LC_COLLATE=C
LC_MESSAGES=en_US.UTF-8

The error when i launch gnome-terminal is :

# Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gnome.Terminal: Timeout was reached

Please use code tags when pasting to the boards: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … s_and_code

Set your locale properly https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Locale

Not according to your original locale output.

Hello.
I have had the same exact problem. I tried every different technique until I found this one:

dbus-launch gnome-terminal

This command will almost certainly almost always work to open gnome-terminal. I also installed slim-unicode instead of slim, but I don't know if I had any effect on the problem. (I was desperate to have a running station today, I did not have time to fine-tune my solution.)

(I love being able to use the Primary and the Clipboard systems with gnome-terminal, this is why I use it.)

Sounds like https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61177 ?
Not the OP issue in case, though (240 hit the repos around x-mas)
