Cannot install Wine because of .gvfs issue

I’m wanting to install Wine but I always get the .gvfs permission denied
error, is there a workaround for this? Because of the same issue I also
can’t install a gegl update.

It’s quite annoying because it downloads and tries to install every
time I make a software change.

Thanks

Try this open yast software search for gfs make sure all but the devel
package is selected.
Right click and select update all unconditionally

I’ve already searched for possible solutions on how to fix the .gvfs
issue but none helped me out.

These include:

  • Reinstalling the gvfs packages and rebooting
  • Removing the .gvfs directory

I had the same problem, but I had “Screenlets” and “AWN menu manager”.
Screenlets use .gvfs and it cannot be removed until Screenlets were
removed.
That was my case.

I was able to remove the .gvfs directory but it didn’t fix my issue,
instead it just outputted an empty error instead of the permission
denied error.

Ok, will have a look. My first guess is dropbox because I think it
started happening after I installed it.
