    Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    I've tried installing the latest version of gvfc from source per another thread, but it's sill not working....

    Any other ideas? What other information do I need to provide?

    I cannot access my USB thumb drive. When I click on Computer, I get this error: Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    You need to be more specific. Which thread? And what do you mean by "not working"? Is there an error message?

    And is your question about your thumb drive related to gvfc? If you don't know, did this error only occur after trying to install gvfc? Please post the output of dmesg.

    Click on Computer and the thread title is the error message.

    And is your question about your thumb drive related to gvfc? If you don't know, did this error only occur after trying to install gvfc? Please post the output of dmesg.
    The thread indicates that this should be solved by installing GVFC from source.

    Tried
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/local /usr/local.old && sudo mkdir /usr/local
    and now I do get a different error:

    Previously I would get the following:

    Code:
    Could not display "computer:".
    
    Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.
    Now I get the following:

    Code:
    Could not display "computer:///".
    
    Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.
    Rather strange!

    Fixed by installing another file system and rebooting.

    Now to determine what issues I'll run into by running this other file system.

    Question Re: Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    After I issue the following command, everything is okay now! but why?
    Code:
    mv /usr/local /usr/local.old
    mkdir /usr/local
    currently, the following files live in my /usr/local, is the Nautilus was affected by these libs? if so, which lib does?:

    Re: Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    This is an old thread, but I ran into this problem recently and this thread was in the top google results. The problem was that I had compiled glib from source to solve a dependency for compiling gimp 2.7. That put a new version of libgio in /usr/local/lib

    Solution was to remove all libglib and libgio files in /usr/local/lib. Then the libglib and libgio from /usr/lib are loaded.

    Re: Nautilus cannot handle "computer" locations.

    I just ran into this problem a few days ago and I just found a solution for me that works wonders on this thread below

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801597&page=8

    Simply all I did was open a terminal and type in

    sudo aptitude install ubuntu-desktop

    then Choose Yes.

    I can confirm this solution works. Exactly the same issue. Removed these files, rebooted and it is fine once more.
