    Exclamation Can't get to /home/user

    Hi all,
    Just this morning I found a disturbing error message when I tried to view my user home directory.
    I am running Crunchbang 12.04LTS on a generic Gateway (nothing odd).

    I found:
    Code:
    Failed to open directory "user".
    Error when getting information for file '/home/user/.gvfs': Transport endpoint is not connected.
    So I went to my terminal and tried to view '/home/user/.gvfs' and got a large amount of junk (what I would call junk)

    Code:
    sudo kwrite /home/mcc/.gvfs
    [sudo] password for mcc:

    Re: Urgent: Can't get to /home/user !

    A possible workaround you can try is to manually unmount your ~/.gvfs, running the following at a terminal window:
    Code:
    fusermount -u ~/.gvfs
    Then close/unmount all opened remote locations in Nautilus and log out and back in, again. This will restore the .gvfs-functionality.

    Please refer to this.
