 Q. Why does my Desktop session fail with "Could not connect to session bus: failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-"?

This is most commonly seen with users who have Anaconda or Miniconda initialized in their accounts. For a permanent solution, you can run the following command from an interactive terminal session:

conda config --set auto_activate_base false

This will prevent conda from auto-activating when you first log in and allow you to have more control over your environment. When you'd like to activate anaconda, run conda activate. See this example for information running anaconda workflows in batch with auto-activation disabled.

$ dos2unix <filename>
