solution: nautilus not opening in ubuntu 11.10

nautilus is not opening in my ubuntu 11.10 gnome 3 shell.

I have to click the “Files” icon in the left menu four or five times to open it.
But still it may open sometimes and may not some times.

Found the solution here:

The solution is to remove the package “nautilus-open-terminal’

sudo apt-get –purge remove nautilus-open-terminal

This fixes the issue.

  1. I had a similar problem, it turned out to be because one of my bookmarks in nautilus was on an nfs share (mounted by autofs) and whenever I left the home network nautilus would not open. Eventually I worked it out and deleted the bookmark, no more problems with nautilus.
