View Full Version : [ubuntu] No icons home folder opens and closes

October 22nd, 2008, 07:15 AM
Hi I'm having somewhat of an issue. When I log in my icons appear for a second and then disappear. Then my home folder proceeds to open and close maybe 5-6 times. And then whenever I try to access my home folder it opens and closes immediately.

Please send help.

Thank you.

This one is quite hard to answer without more information. First, which version of ubuntu are you running? And what file-manager is it which is failing?

I'm running 8.04. I believe it's nautilus that is failing. But the weird thing is I don't remember upgrading to 8.04 just installing all the updates for 7.10. When I run the update manager I get a prompt for a partial upgrade followed by an "A upgrade from hardy to gutsy is not supported with this tool" error.

Thank you for your time.
