    gksudo nautilus command does not work

    hi all,

    I cannot get gksudo nautilus to work. I downloaded nautilus-elementary, and then nautilus desktop, now when I try to access gksudo nautilus in the command line i get this message:

    Nautilus could not create the required folder "/root/.config/nautilus".

    Before running Nautilus, please create the following folder, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create it.

    I tried to create the file with sudo mkdir, but it told me the file already existed.

    Can someone help me get the, gksudo nautilus, command working for me again?

    I posted a question at the nautilus-elementary launchpad site but my question was taken down without explanation.

    I posted a bug there about my photos losing ability to auto rotate in default photo viewer after installing nautilus-elementary, and "kitkat" promptly and coldly replied it is not his/her problem and the bug post was being deleted. Don't know "kitkat" but my feeling is he/she won't be helping me...ever.

    thanks to all that try to help!

    I don't think it is meant to be a file like that at least i do not have that file and nautilus works.

    Does it work to use "sudo nautilus"?

    sudo nautilus, does not work either, it gives me the same error message.

    and i tried, gksu nautilus, as well, it does not work either, with the same error message.

    make sure that gksu-nautilus is installed. I recently upgraded to Lucid and for some reason it got removed.

    Open synaptic and search for nautilus, it should be there.

    This might sound stupid but worth a try, what about "sudo gksudo nautilus"?

    Also, does you have a directory called "/root/.nautilus"?

    Yes, I have nautilus-gksu activated, you are correct it was deactivated, but activating it was one of the first things I did when I started to troubleshoot this problem.

    No, that is not stupid, but it didn't work either

    no I do not have a folder named /root/.nautilus

    but are you talking about /root/.config/nautilus instead? the one nautilus says is not there.

    I would love to actually see what is in my root folder but, gksudo nautilus does not work.

    if this helps, looking for /root/.config/nautilus returns a does not exist in terminal, but.....

    .config/nautilus does exist in terminal, without typing "/root"

    EDIT: The directory is empty though.

    Try this:

    Code:
    gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/nautilus
