Hi, I'm new to linux.
I've got a problem: I can't open any folders in the "Places" Menu.
When I click on Places->Home folder or Desktop or ... , I got errors.
" Could not open location ********"
There is no default action associated with this location
This problem happens just today. I think I didn't do anything.
btw, accessing those locations using terminal are fine.

Make sure that the following lines are as follows:
If not, change and save.

Probably not this problem.
The codes are correct.

OK. I got it. I accidentally uninstalled the ubuntu-desktop.
now it is fine.

What happens when you write
in a terminal? Can you open your home folder that way? If not, does it give any error messages?
Edit: Nevermind, I didn't see your last message.

I get that same error and following Vivaldi Glorias advice everything seems to work. I.E. typing "nautilus ~" in the application launcher launches the file browser just fine.
Using the Places menu everything bombs.
