Re: [opensuse] Leap 15 and rhythmbox

I am having troubles with rhythmbox. The application opens, and I can select a track to play. But none of the buttons work. I receive an error message:
Unable to grab media player keys: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.Dbus.Error.ServiceUnKnown: The name org.gnome.SettingsDaemon was not provided by any .service files

I do not have Gnome installed. And I do not know what this means. Please help.

I have tried many things suggested here, and spent much time with google. The problem appears to be with Fvwm2. If login without fvwm rhythmbox works. As soon as I launch fvwm it fails. One error message is:
(rhythmbox:27887): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Failed to send notification (dancing_queen): GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files

I looked on the web and found the comment "Notifications doesn't work on Linux standalone window managers". Not sure if this is the problem, but I think that Rhythmbox is trying to save the current track, (dancing_queen) and fails. When I try to stop it there is no response.

The fvwm version on 43.2 was 2.6.6, now it is 2.6.7. In the line for supported options the new version does not have PNG listed, which I thought was just a file format, but that may be wrong.

Is there a way to load fvwm 2.6.6 on leap 15 as an experiment? I guess I could download the source and try to build it in the Leap 15 environment if there are no other alternatives.
