"Files" File manager is not working on my Ubuntu 20.04 system.
If I try to open it from terminal by using
nautilus command, still nothing is happening.
But if I try with
sudo nautilus command then It can open.
But each time I dont want to open it through terminal command.
I want it to open through UI only as it was working before.
I had recently installed docker on my system. I thought this was happening because of docker installation. so I completely uninstalled docker using these steps, but still issue has not solved.
I have also tried below solutions. But nothing has worked for me.
sudo apt-get install --reinstall nautilus-data
ps awx | grep nautilus sudo kill -TERM <id>
sudo apt-get remove nautilus sudo apt-get autoremove sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install nautilus
sudo nautilus& made a change that as a consequence, has removed access from your user for one of it's configuration files. It shouldn't be run with
sudo, or should you do it, you should be careful to not change ownership away from your own $USER and give ownership to root. Look for files in $HOME that aren't owned by you anymore & correct your ownership
