    gksudo nautilus no longer works?

    Hi

    I've done something (but don't know what?) which has meant that I can no longer launch nautilus with root privaliges. Here's the Terminal output
    mark@ubuntu-desktop:~$ gksudo nautilus
    Initializing nautilus-share extension
    seahorse nautilus module initialized
    (nautilus:6154): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_simple_async_result_set_from_error: assertion `error != NULL' failed

    (nautilus:6154): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_error_free: assertion `error != NULL' failed

    (nautilus:6154): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_simple_async_result_set_from_error: assertion `error != NULL' failed

    mark@ubuntu-desktop:~$
    Any ideas how I can fix this please?

    I have tried reinstalling Nautilus in Synaptic but I still get the same result.

    After you reinstalled, did you log-out & log back in?


    sudo apt-get install nautilus -y

    do you by any chance have a cd/blank cd in your drive? ...if so remove it and try again.
