    Question HELP! Places > Any Folder, Launches Disk Analyzer 14.04

    HELP!

    Places > Any Folder, Launches Disk Usage Analyzer 14.04 from the Main Menu in Ubuntu Classic GNOME. Has Nautilus lost its mind???

    When I select Places > Computer, nautilus displays the correct folder view.

    Also, nautilus run from the terminal runs correctly and there is no terminal output.

    How do I recover from this? Reinstalled baobab didn't help.

    Thanks, Hannibal

    run
    Code:
    gedit ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
    search for
    Code:
    inode/directory
    What does that line show?

    There is no such line. Below are the contents of the entire file:

    What does this command give you?
    Code:
    xdg-mime query default inode/directory

    Just this:

    sophie@sophie-Inspiron-1545:~$ xdg-mime query default inode/directory
    nautilus-folder-handler.desktop
    sophie@sophie-Inspiron-1545:~$

    This problem started after I added some new software to the Main Menu. I think it's possible that the menu editor clobbered the config file.

    To make clear - what session are you using? " Classic GNOME" would imply the gnome-shell extension that adds a 'Classic' session option.
    Otherwise there is gnome-flashback which offers 2 session options - compiz or metacity

    I'll guess you are using flashback, if so then try renaming ~/.config/menus/gnome-flashback-applications.menu to a .bak, log out/in & see if improved.
    If so then read thru that file in a text editor & see what is wrong.. or just delete it & edit menus more carefully

    Yes,

    Thank you. I am using Gnome Flashback Compiz. I followed your advice, and I assumed as I'm sure you did that the system would create a new config file; however, this didn't happen. I even tried rebooting and this didn't help.

    BTW, here are the contents of the config file. It doesn't look complete:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" ?>

        </Menu>
    </Menu>
    Here's something else I discovered. I also tried checking an unchecked item in the main menu and when I opened it up again, it would still be unchecked.
    To me this means that the menu editor itself is not writing to the config file. Perhaps, this app is corrupt and needs to be reinstalled after renaming the
    original config file to .bak as I did in the first attempt.

    Do you know what the correct name of this app is, so I can try to find it in Synaptic?

    It's called alacarte.
    A new user 'gnome-flashback-applications.menu' would only be created after making some edit's, otherwise you'd be using the default <whatever>.menu file.
    Is there anything else in that folder/ (~/.config/menus/
    &
    what's in ~/.local/share/applications folder
    (as in
    ls ~/.local/share/applications
    &
    ls ~/.config/menus

    Well I'd try any of the below -
    Create a folder somewhere else like in Documents, move all those .desktops from .local/share/applications there, log out/in & see
    or
    open all those .desktops in gedit & look for a suspect Exec= line, may need to arrow over in gedit to view some.. -
    Code:
    gedit .local/share/applications/*.desktop
    or
    Code:
    cd .local/share/applications && grep -R baobab
