Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have two computers running Ubuntu 11.04. I am able to to see them on the network but when I try to open the shared files I get the message,

unable to mount location
dbus error org.freedesktop.dbus.error.noreply
message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus).

How do I fix this please? I have only been using Linux for a few days. This is not a dual boot system. It runs Ubuntu 11.04 only.

What are you using to view the files, and how are you attempting to access them? –  belacqua Sep 13 '11 at 3:06
