View Full Version : [gnome] Nautilus stopped working

August 7th, 2009, 08:06 PM
My Nautilus stopped working a couple days ago. I am running Jaunty and believe I have all the latest official updates. I can't think of anything I could have done to break it in the past couple days.

When I log in, I get the spinning wait cursor, which doesn't go away until I kill nautilus. If I run nautilus from the terminal, a file browser window pops up, but it's empty on the inside, and doesn't redraw itself after I move another window over it. I've tried logging out & logging back in as a different user and also running as root using gksudo, but no luck. I have been able to get it to start by pointing to an empty folder or folder without too many files, but it quickly dies if I try to do anything (e.g. scroll).

Any tips would be much appreciated!
