My distribution is: Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS Desktop Environment = Unity

I have a problem with Nautilus. I explain you. I had it uninstalled to install Nemo. Now I have reinstalled it but, after a while when I open a folder on the Desktop, Nautilus opens another process with a folder header that has nothing to do with it. To understand it better I made a screen recorder that shows the problem. (https://streamable.com/b17ru)

Can anyone give me a hand to restore Nautilus properly?

  • me neither. What can I do? I've tried to unistall it, install it again but nothing. – antododo Aug 28 at 9:54
  • Try remove config rm -Rf ~/.config/nautilus/ and then restart nautilus using nautilus -q. If that does not help, I'm sorry I don't know. – pLumo Aug 28 at 9:56
  • maybe I've deleted some config. this is the output of 'nautilus -q': (nautilus:20366): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to register client: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.gnome.SessionManager was not provided by any .service files Initializing nautilus-image-converter extension (nautilus:20366): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: <broken file>:1:0: Failed to import: The resource at '/org/gnome/libgd/tagged-entry/default.css' does not exist ** (nautilus:20366): CRITICAL **: Another desktop manager in use; desktop window won't be created – antododo Aug 28 at 9:59
  • Try, rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/* – nobody Aug 28 at 10:11
