    When I try to open trash from sidebar icon I get "Failed to open "trash:"

    About couple of days ago I started getting error Failed to open "trash:" when I tried to open trash from sidebar. If I open Nautilus/Thunar and
    choose Trash folder, it behave normally and show the files from trash. I also use Cairo Dock and when I click on Trash icon there is no problem and I'm not getting any error. I tried to search for the name of the error but didn't find anything. I use 13.04 with unity but I guess you already found out that

    After I click on "close" button from first error I am getting a second error: http://screencloud.net/v/qSxr

    catalynn-nr1, be very welcome to the forums.

    It seems as though you run yourself into a already reported bug: Bug #1217647

    If you're also running Ubuntu 13.04, you can log into it and click the “this affects me too” button.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.

    It seems that I didn't search hard enough. Thank you very much for the help and as you asked, I logged in and checked the option "this affects me too". It's not a critical bug, so there's no hurry for developers. Should I mark this thread as "solved" or wait until a fix is released?

    Even though you didn't get a solution, IMO you should marked the thread as solved. so other people dealing with the same situation can at least be aware of the existence of the bug and thus checking the "this affects me too" option in the bug report.
