When launching Midori, and several other programs from Terminal, I get the following error:

WARNING **: Couldn't connect to accessibility bus: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-uyN7DFK2Jm: Connection refused

Apparently this is an issue with certain programs (such as Midori) leveraging GTK3 extensions. The software funtions normally, and the error can be suppressed by pasting the following into Terminal:

export NO_AT_BRIDGE=1

I added mine to /etc/rc.local and it supressed the errors automatically.

  • No there is no privileges for acceptance even with 1rep. But for self answers, it is allowed only after 48 hours which already passed.
