I have Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy, and I just installed Cinnamon 2.0 desktop. When I try to open files /Home is not responding and freezes.

I can access specific folders like ~/Picture and ~/Music from 'search' and 'menu' and it responds, but only the /Home folder freezes. I also get a pop up message:

Home is not Responding: "Force Quit" or "Wait".

enter image description here

Please Help!!

Ubuntu is case sensitive, /home is lower case. See askubuntu.com/questions/444116/… askubuntu.com/questions/262674/… askubuntu.com/questions/17062/… ... tons more. –  Takkat Apr 13 at 10:44

Try this:

sudo apt-get remove cinnamon
sudo apt-get autoremove

Then:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cinnamon

The commands above will remove your current installed version of cinnamon and then reinstall it.

Thanks for your reply. Actually before the pop up "Home is not responding" the loading wheel appears. I decided to just let it load and see what happens and before you know it, it loaded. I guess there was two huge file that was installed that took a long time to load. 1 file named "9zkj6qvPTK" has 295,000+ items in it, and the other file named "wtkTPPrTTi" has 730,000+ items in it. It takes a while to load. My question now is What is those files?, Can I delete those file?, and What to do with those files, if I should not delete it? Please help!! –  Chente Apr 14 at 5:30
