    Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    I'm running openbox and had this problem as well (still do I suppose). However when I start nautilus via dbus-launch "computer:" works just fine.

    dbus-launch nautilus --no-desktop

    It also worked for me. Thanks!

    Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    IN my case with 9.10, I had installed glib to compile audacious. Removing it manually as described on page 3 fixed the problem.

    This works for my too, but in my case I dent have a /usr/local/ directory, I done this:

    lazyeye@lazyeye-desktop:~$ sudo mkdir /usr/local
    lazyeye@lazyeye-desktop:~$ sudo mv /usr/local /usr/local.old
    lazyeye@lazyeye-desktop:~$ sudo mkdir /usr/local

    I am using 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10. Yestarday I was tryíng to install GTK+, GLib, Cairo, ATK, etc just to realize an hour later that my system already has them all.

    I am learning how to program Linux applications with C language and GTK+ API

    Arrow Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    I've been struggling with this issue for about a week, insisting on trying the suggested solutions roughly in order of perceived impact/my understanding! Hence, I have

    * tried the 'dbus launcher' approach from a terminal (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...39&postcount=9)
    * reinstalled both nautilus & gvfs-backends
    * tried to compile gvfs from source (hit a problem with required package dbus-1, which I couldn't install through aptitude)
    * installed ubuntu-desktop through apt-get

    But it looks like glib was the issue for me:

    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    Didn't appear to work, unless I needed a reboot first. Stupidly, I didn't try again after following this suggestion:

    and went straight for a reboot after the /usr/local 'refresh', so either of the above could have done the job...

    Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    Thank you, phiphi. Your solution worked like a charm.

    This has happened quite a few times before. Back then I did not know what was causing it and I couldn't find a fix for it, so I always ended up reinstalling Ubuntu. Now it happened once again and I was very close to throwing my computer through the window.

    Seems like I need to be a little bit more active on these forums.

    Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    Thank you rjellinek

    glib was indeed the issue for me. With your simple solution of
    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    everything is back to normal! Thank you!

    Re: "Nautilus cannot handle Computer: locations"

    I am having this same problem and I did install glib from source but I also went and followed these steps and uninstalled it but that did not solve my problem with Nautilus opening computer folder and so on. I am using Ubuntu Studio 10.10

    Any help would be great thank you
