    Default gvfs: Permission denied

    I've received this error on my opensuse12.2 box:
    https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...on-denied.html
    I've tried reinstalling the programs, but it dod not help.

    The error 'cannot access /run/user/mbj/gvfs: Permission denied' shows
    up in lots of monitor programs, so I want to reset the permissions so this works.


    Code:
    mortenb-ws2:/opt/apache/conf # ls -l /run/user/mbj/
    ls: cannot access /run/user/mbj/gvfs: Permission denied
    total 0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Jan  2 10:29 X11-display -> /tmp/.X11-unix/X0

    Could you show output of "grep gvfs /proc/mounts"?

    I'm pretty sure that is not any kind of a problem. I'm not currently seeing that, logged in with KDE, but it would possibly show up if I used gnome.

    Check The Wikipedia page for gvfs

    In short, it has to do with a gnome virtual file system, accessible only to the user logged into gnome, and not even accessible to root (because the virtualizing software doesn't allow root).

    It belongs to Gnome and although you might be a KDE users, it will be created on the usage of a Gnome application.

    I have since a few years. My backup allways protests and I allways ignore. You have to live with it.

    Thanks all

    Code:
    mbj@mortenb-ws2:~> grep gvfs /proc/mounts
    gvfs-fuse-daemon /run/user/mbj/gvfs fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=1000,group_id=100 0 0
    I mainly use kde but have some gnome apps I use frequently, my only problem is the permission denied it outputs from time to time.
    I'm now ignoring /run/user from our monitor and scanning scripts and the problem is gone.

    Thanks again
