View Full Version : [ubuntu] /usr/bin issues

July 23rd, 2010, 04:11 PM
:( Two issues have surfaced today with 10.04.

First, using either nautilus or the file browser (as sudo), i tried to get a listing of the /usr/bin directory. after a few seconds, either program will close. However, in terminal the ls command will give the directory listing.

The second is that when I went to report the bug through the system help and support menu option, help would not start nor would it start upon pressing the F1 key. :(

thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.

Are you using "gksu" to open the browser or "sudo". Sometimes, but not always, using "sudo" has unpredictable results.
