View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bonobo Error On Ubuntu 8.10

December 20th, 2008, 01:11 AM
This the first time, I've ever had a problem with an Ubuntu build. I had to post this to see if anyone else has received this error as well.

It was a dedicated box for my website, and I had it setup perfectly, and as I was instructed to restart the pc due to the kernel update, so I restarted the pc and I received this error!

"Nautilus can't be used now, due to an unexpected error from Bonobo when attempting to locate the factory. Killing bonobo-activation-server and restarting Nautilus may help fix the problem."

However, all I can see is the background image, no desktop icons, nothing. Even pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete didn't help, as it only gave me 2 options. Log off my account or switch users.

Of course this really upset me, because I set this server up perfectly and transferred critical data to it, only to lose it within a few hours. So, has anyone else received this error, and how does one go about correcting this?



P.S If this thread is in the wrong forum, please move to the correct one. Thanks In Advance.
