I am having a problem with recent files in nautilus: when clicking on it, i am getting the error:(loosely translated):

"Something went wrong! error message not managed: Message recipient disconnected from message bus without replying"

When I am looking at the system journals, i am getting the list of messages below.

Do you have any suggestions of what it means, and how I could get it repaired? I like my recent files.


Here are the lists of message I am getting in journal system.

I found a solution here.

Adding Environment=DISPLAY=:0 in the service file

/usr/lib/systemd/user/gvfs-daemon.service

and reboot/relogin solves it.

    You should not edit /usr/lib/systemd/user/gvfs-daemon.service directly, but instead override it using systemctl edit gvfs-daemon.service. – muru Feb 6 '17 at 12:38

    @muru I had to do systemctl --user edit gvfs-daemon.service to get this to work. – David L Jul 18 '17 at 17:04
  • @DavidL ah, yes, I forgot that this was a user service. – muru Jul 19 '17 at 5:16

Looks like there is already a bug report about it:
