View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop is empty and cannot access my folders

July 24th, 2008, 07:27 AM
Hi, I use Hardy and suddenly realized that all the files from the desktop has vanished and also I cannot access to my hard drive, folders from the "places". However, I can access to all of them from terminal. Need help to solve this problem. Thanks.

try killing nautilus:

killall nautilus
and if that doesn't work try launching it again from a terminal, see what error messages there are if any.

error messages are [2] 7797

ok, first thing to try is reinstalling nautilus from a command line:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall nautilus
then try restarting nautilus, if that doesn't work you may be able to roll back to the previous version, in the package manager highlight nautilus and use "Packages>Force Package" in the top menu to roll it back.
