Hi,
after upgrading graphics driver I now get the following error when running hardware tester:

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:
/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstlibvisual.so

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.

Although I can find the file I'm unable to remove it as I don't have the right 'permissions'?

Please try and keep answers simple as I'm a newbie to Ubuntu, thx.

Paul.

try this
sudo rm /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstlibvisual.so
You need to put that in a terminal.

Hi,

If you would like to delete or copy/paste files in the file manager, open Terminal and type:

gkedit nautilus

You need to type your password and you can play around with files as you like.

That command is actually
gksudo nautilus

To use Nautilus:

gksudo nautilusI'm guessing this is what NewbeeMichael meant.
Ha nevermind Kestrel beat me to it ;)

gksudo nautilus

I always use
sudo nautilus
Does gksudo make any difference?

No it does the same job, but using gksudo gives you a gui type password box.
You could press ALT & F2 together to get the Run Application box up & type
gksudo nautilus

None. Its just a GUI sudo.

In most cases doesn't, but sometimes is very wrong.
