I am getting the error: "Error constructing proxy for org.gnome.Terminal:/org/gnome/Terminal/Factory0: Could not connect: Connection refused" when I try to run gnome-terminal. I am running CentOS 7. I am using SSH to remotely connect to the VM and am using VcXsrv to get the GUI.
When I try to run terminator, I get a similar error: "Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-8LlMXZC0jW: Connection refused"
I think this is related to a permissions issue as gnome-terminal runs fine when I run it as sudo. It was also working fine some time ago so I believe I messed up some file permissions somewhere.
