Hello.
I have a small problem with screenfetch. When i started it as normal user everything is ok. But when i started as root i have this notificacion in terminal:
"Failed to init libxfconf: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken..
Failed to init libxfconf: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken..

Sorry for my bad english.

Can you help me?

i get the same message here.
why would you run it as su ...
you can run it with just screenfetch. This works fine.
as sudo screenfetch - this works fine
but when you change to su...
then you get these errors.
message says something about security policy
...
just use screenfetch as normal user i would say

Very much to do with security policy within arch linux.
