I upgraded to UBuntu 11.10 yesterday from 11.04. Everything went smoothly except the fact that nautilus wont start anymore. It exits with a segmentation fault. Any idea how to stop this from happening. ?

:~$ nautilus

Sounds like a bug, you should report that. Here are details on how to do it. – James Oct 14 '11 at 14:24
@jrg: thanks. I have already posted a bug in launchpad. – Ubuntuser Oct 14 '11 at 14:25
@Ubuntuser Link to the bug report? – Marco Ceppi Oct 14 '11 at 14:26
Which bug? You should have put that in your question (though we'll likely close this, bug reports like this should be on the bug tracker) – Jorge Castro Oct 14 '11 at 14:26
@ubuntuser Ok, voting to close - if it turns out that it isn't a bug, feel free to flag to reopen. – James Oct 14 '11 at 14:27

Remove the nautilus-open-terminal extension. This is causing problems right now and there is an open bug about it (see here).

This bug is now marked as fixed. If you are still experiencing the problem you may have another problem.
