    Journal: unable to create file in Linux

    Error: journal: unable to create file '/run/user/0/dconf/user': Permission denied. dconf will not work properly.


    We keep Seeing this error message in the messages file repetitively. When I check journal with journalctl -b command, I found that the messages are generated by tracker-extract process. 




    Solution :


    When we check journal with journalctl -b command, I found that the messages are generated by tracker-extract process.

    tracker-extract[5011]: unable to create file '/run/user/0/dconf/user': Permission denied.  dconf will not work properly.
    tracker-extract[5011]: unable to create file '/run/user/0/dconf/user': Permission denied.  dconf will not work properly.

    The message will not be generated after "tracker daemon -k all" because the command stops all tracker related daemons. But this solution Holds true for the current session. To prevent the autostart of tracker processes we need to modify following files.



    /etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-extract.desktop/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-apps.desktop/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-fs.desktop/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-user-guides.desktop/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop


    All These files contains 'X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true' line in it.  Modify the options to false like 'X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false' the GNOME will not start tracker-* processes from the next boot.
