exact same issue as closed issue: Empty Nautilus Menus
I have a nautilus window open and when I go to file, edit, view, go, bookmarks, or help, there is nothing in the menus. I'm trying to view my network and shared folders from other systems, but cannot get to it, as the "Go" menu is empty. the left column of nautilus is showing the mounted drives and folders. network is not listed there. since the pull down menu "view" is empty, I cannot switch the sidebar from tree to places. This system, while a desktop, runs as a VM server for me and I will not be able to reboot for a week or so.
