Others have reported a similar problem. Start up the terminal and type:

$ env

Do you see an environment variable like this?

XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/`id -u`

Where id -u is enclosed in backticks not single quotes. This variable is reinterpreted into a number usually 1000 for regular users and 0 for super user (sudo).

If the environment variable XDG_RUNTIME_DIR does not exist you need to create it. The full discussion is in launchpad systemd answers.
