Journal spam from touchégg

I’m seeing errors in my log every 5 seconds …

/usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[3181]: Error connecting to Touchégg daemon: Could not connect: Connection refused
/usr/libexec/gdm-x-session[3181]: Reconnecting in 5 seconds…

This looks like a gdm permissions problem. Does anyone have a fix for this? (apart from the brute force solution of removing touchegg)

The error doesn’t necessarily mean a permissions problem.

Is the touchegg daemon running? I think the normal setup is to run the daemon via a systemd unit, while the client is loaded via autostart (although you could have a different setup).

What’s the output of:

systemctl status touchegg.service
