Having a problem with Pidgin that may have come after the 5.2 upgrade.
I don't use pidgin daily, but the last time I used it (a week or two ago)
it was fine. Now, when clicking the icon nothing visible happens. When I
open an xterm and run it from there I get this:

$ pidgin
libnm_glib_nm_state_cb: dbus returned an error.
  (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown) The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

and the terminal does not return to a prompt. there is no visible window
for Pidgin, but parts of it may be running, as I heard the sound that (I
think) means "buddy comes online".

running "ps ax | grep -y pidgin" returns one process, so it's not entirely

Anyone else seem this, or anyone have suggestions?

Oh, also, I've recently enabled "desktop effects". I think I'll disable that
and see if it helps.
