Error: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply

For those of you who use Ubuntu on a daily basis this error message may sound familiar:

Error: DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) Please select another viewer and try again.

I get it from time to time when trying to connect to a SSH or FTP server from nautilus. I found a solution through google, though I can’t recall where, so no “source” link. Here it is:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure nautilus

Wait a couple of seconds before you try connecting again.

Hope that works for you.
