Nautilus keeps trying to startup

Post by jcgg » Thu Dec 31, 2009 8:08

I am using Sabayon Gnome 5.1 64 bit. After logging in Nautilus continually tries to startup. So down in the lower panel I have many windows displaying the application "File Manager" and the number of windows just keep on growing. Doing a ps - aux Nautilus keeps showing a different PID. When i remove Nautilus the problem goes away. When I install Nautilus using Sulfur, Nautilus behaves until I reboot the computer and the problem begins again.

Also, my Desktop does not display any icons and when I try to drop icons on the Desktop the Desktop just drops them as if they are disappearing. Oh one more item, I lost my Appearance application in the Preferences toolbar. Appearance does not even show up in the menu editor.

Any help would be appreciated because I frequently access my Windows partitions from Sabayon.

Your system is obviously having issues, I would:

Code: Select all

equo update
equo install entropy equo sulfur
equo install gnome-light
equo world
equo deptest
equo libtest

Well thank you for the suggestion. I followed your instructions. Unfortunately Nautilus still causes the same problem so I removed it. I still can't place anything on the desktop. As much as I like this distro it has way to many issues for me to deal with. So bye bye Sabayon.
