It sounds like the package is not installed correctly. Your best option is to go to the PPA maintainer and ask them to see if they will help you with the issue directly.

Consider that this is an experiment, and what you're doing is testing. There are bound to be problems and you should certainly report them to the elementary team:

Solved this by re-adding the ppa; then apt-get update; then apt-get upgrade. Once commands have completed run nautilus -q to restart Nautilus or log off / log on to GNOME session.

It seems that some packages Nautilus packages were not upgraded for some reason - above steps fixed for me :)
