    Initializing nautilus-gdu extension Segmentation Fault after using assogiate

    I'm running 9.10 and just installed assogiate and used it to change the icon of a filetype. Now, nautilus crashes every time I try to run it with:

    Code:
    (nautilus:22736): Eel-CRITICAL **: eel_preferences_get_boolean: assertion `preferences_is_initialized ()' failed
    
    ** (nautilus:22736): WARNING **: No marshaller for signature of signal 'UploadFinished'

    ** (nautilus:22736): WARNING **: No marshaller for signature of signal 'ShareCreateError'
    Initializing nautilus-gdu extension
    Segmentation fault
    and here's a relevant part of the output of running "gdb nautilus":

    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    0x00007ffff57ff821 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0
    If I run "gksu nautilus", it opens fine, leading me to believe this is a preference file corruption or something.

    I've tried the following:
    *completely removing and re-istalling nautilus
    *removing ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata

    Try removing
    ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata
    directory.
    It's kinda like file browser cache(I think) that can get corrupted.

    thank you!

    i was having the same problem and removing this folder fixed it. For those of you who do not know how to fix this situation do the following:

    Press ALT+F2


    Type
    Code:
    gnome-terminal
    Type
    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata
    Restart your computer and you should be good to go, if not then this isn't your problem

    Hi!

    I know, this is a rather old thread, but i wanted to thank you.

    After upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 my nautilus crashed randomly when clicking on items or opening folders, or even on just scrolling.
    I was frustrated - a computer does not work, if the file browser crashes all the time...
    In the logs i also found "Initializing nautilus-gdu extension Segmentation Fault" and Google brought me here.

    And removing rm -rf ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata worked great. No crash any more. Thanks!

    Glad it helped you.

    But please don't bump it to the top.

    Closed.
