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
(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

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.

And how are you starting fvwm?

Because if you do so directly without a login manager, using startx, for
instance, things can fail.

Please explain more. I have always launched fvwm2 -r from within my
.xinitrc. I do this after choosing the fvwm option at the login window.
So I think I am using the fvwm login manager, with a subsequent
execution of fvwm in my .xinitrc.

Am I not understanding you?

But you are not using kdm or gdm or lightdm, a display manager aka login
manager (runlevel 5)? Well the thing is that some things do not work if
you don't use them.

In my functioning 42.3 system, the window manger is $WINDOW_MANAGER=/usr/bin/startkde, and the x window manger is $XWINDOWMANAGER=fvwm2. How do I see what is running at runlevel 5?

On my Leap 15 system, logging in as $WINDOW_MANAGER=/usr/bin/startkde with x window manger still listed as $XWINDOWMANAGER=fvwm2.

Are you running Leap 15. Could you try to run fvwm, and in one of its windows spawn Rhythmbox and see what you get?
