    Cool Help! nautilus won't start

    Hi, I installed ubuntu tweaks, and thought it I installed nautilus-wallpaper, then I noticed I can't browse any folders, my desktop icons are gone.

    So i uninstalled nautilus-wallpaper and rebooted the pc, still there are no icons. The mouse cursor keeps spinning.

    I tried sudo nautilus in terminal it gives me error

    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    nautilus: symbol lookup error: nautilus: undefined symbol: g_application_get_type
    :~$
    what do I do? luckily I can run apps through the menu and alt+f2 but can't browse my files.

    I was about to do that, then I realized I had 350MB of updates, nautilus got updated and everything's okay
