    cant open home folder or files

    I am unable to open my home folder or any related files
    I am running Ubuntu 11.04 in Classic mode
    All was OK until an Update Manager install
    I have tried a Nautilus purge and reinstall but no joy
    I have typed Nautilus in a Terminal and this is the result

    root@xxxxx-laptop:/home/xxxx# nautilus
    Initializing nautilus-gdu extension

    ** (nautilus:16957): WARNING **: Failed to get the current CK session: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Gen eralError: Unable to lookup session information for process '16957'

    (nautilus:16957): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

    Please help if possible
    I would hate to have to do a re-install of my OS

    Re: cant open home folder or files

    I have some questions to clarify what is the problem:

    1. What happens if you try to open some other folder (not the home folder)? Can you browse it with Nautilus?

    2. What happens if you open a terminal window and run the command
    ls -l
    Does it list the content of your home directory?

    Maybe you can try to update and upgrade and watch the response, if there are error messages or suggestions what to do:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
