Question what error is this? org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply

Dear all,
I'm using KDE as desktop environment and I have an problem when I kick off Dolphin file manager, it intermittently takes a long time to load (approx 20 minutes). When I kick it from xterm, I got the following error:
bash-3.1$ "/usr/bin/dolphin(4679)" Error in thread 139941332670304 : "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply - Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
And after a while, it eventually goes up. How can I troubleshoot this?

Best regards,

Hi, do you use Dolphin as a web browser?

If not, and you use it as a file-manager then you might check the home folder location,

under settings menu to a local page on your drive.

A network connection is not required to use the app (Dolphin).

HTH, Glenn
