    Default VirtualBox 4.2 "Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server"

    Hi All,

    I've come across a problem in VBox 4.2 running on Opensuse 12.2 where is you try to open file dialogue boxes the error "Cannot talk to klauncher: Not connected to D-Bus server" is displayed. I remembered that there had been a recent DBUS update 1.5.12-4.6.1 and suspected this might be the cause of my problem. Low and behold when reverting to DBUS version 1.5.12-4.1.2 files and folders can now be accessed. Hope this helps anyone who is having the same problem.

    Here is the bug report ref:

    I found this problem too, extremely annoying, especially when dbus re-upgraded itself for some unknown reason...

    Thanks for filing a bug report.

    as far as i know nothing in openSUSE "upgrades itself" without root
    approval..

    either root ran YaST Online Update, or zypper, or approved apper/package
    kit to do the upgrade on or about 5 October (that is when i approved the
    upgrade here)..

    the reason was not unknown: it was presented to me by YaST Online Update
    and i read it before giving the ok... even though i had already had the
    chance to read all about it prior to running:

    I know, I haven't had it happen before. Must have been something to do with online update running without me realising whilst I was messing in the yast version of the software tool (not apper).

    Yes, rebooted multiple times in trying to solve the problem. The original poster is correct, the QT version of the current Virtualbox is unable to open file browsing dialog boxes with the new update of dbus in opensuse, downgrading to the previous version fixes it.

    I am seeing the same error with VBox 4.2 on a 12.1 System running with dbus 1.5.8-2.6.1

    Is the a dbus issue or a Vbox issue?

    I'll answer my own question - on 12.1, with Vbox 4.1.2 , dbus 1.5.8-2.6.1 does not work, but dbus 1.5.8-2.1.2 does work.

    So recent updates to dbus on 12.1 and 12.2 seem to stop Vbox from running.
