Indeed, you should report a bug rather than asking here. Please note that since this bug looks to be a crash, it would be a good idea to enable Apport crash reporting and report the bug by producing the problem to trigger Apport, which will automatically attach much more important information from the crash than just running "ubuntu-bug nautilus". See And remember to also read carefully before reporting your bug. – Eliah Kagan Oct 12 '11 at 14:00

  1. If you have the package "nautilus-open-terminal" installed then remove it using Synaptic or using the command:

    apt-get --purge remove nautilus-open-terminal
  2. Try to remove nautilus config files using the command:

    rm -rf ~/.nautilus
  3. Find another solution from here
