Not sure where to put this, so Mods please move to the right place.
I upgraded from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.10 (64bit) and since then upon start up Nautilus just sits there and eat the CPU and memory and makes the laptop pretty unusable.
I have to do a "killall nautilus" in the terminal to get control over laptop again. I have even tried to upgrade to 13.04 (which runs great on my laptop) and even upgraded Nautilus to 3.6 but sill it hangs.
I even tried "sudo apt-get purge nautilus-open-terminal" but Nautilus is still eating CPH.
I have looked around and yet to find a solution that solves it and I can see others are having the the same problem.
I'm now using Gnome-commander and terminal for my files. Though every time I boot up, insert a external HDD or when other programs calls for Nautilus I end up with a laptop that unusable until I kill nautilus, which is rather annoying to do.
Does anyone here got an idea on how to solve this. I used to like Nautilus but I might have to give Gnome etc a go to stop this.
