I found a batter way to solve that problem.

You should install or reinstall one of the packages xdg-desktop-portal* List them on Ubuntu with:

 ```apt list | grep desktop-portal```

And try to install:

 ```sudo apt-get install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

or reinstall:

 ```sudo apt-get --reinstall install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome```

It seems you need to rerun DBus to apply changes, but I just restarted my PC.

If xdg-desktop-portal-gnome won't help then try to install/reinstall xdg-desktop-portal-gtk and xdg-desktop-portal.
