Nautilus froze and I had to terminate it using
however now everytime I open nautilus it does not work properly: It seems to respond to the mouse (as clicking on [x] closes the window) but the interface does not update, so any click on any folder does not show its contents. I can't even resize the nautilus window, it just acts as if it is completely frozen.
The only two options (besides restarting the computer) are
nautilus -q killall nautilus
but neither helps, as this happens everytime I open nautilus.
What else can I try to get it to work?
