I don't know if this is related to a config issue, a gtk issue or a gphoto2 issue (I think I recall a discussion where this was tagged as a gvfs issue), but whenever gtk_file_chooser_dialog_new is called by an application, I get the following error:

Error creating proxy: Error calling StartServiceByName for org.gtk.Private.GPhoto2VolumeMonitor: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program org.gtk.Private.GPhoto2VolumeMonitor: Success (g-dbus-error-quark, 23)

This doesn't have any ill effect on normal file-open file-save operations, but I would like to find a solution or workaround to prevent the error from being thrown. There are a number of search results for variations of this problem, but I have not been able to find the root cause or workaround for the error.

I have the following gphoto related packages installed:


Is this a known problem, and if so, is there a workaround that will prevent this error from being triggered?

Short workaround not a real fix: remove /rename this files:


then call and relogin:
killall /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor

or reboot.

This is caused by dbus/gvfs, not by an end-user desktop app
