lately i've been getting this error whenver I start gedit and the error message seems to fill my terminal buffer.

PS: a day before I used nautilius to get access to usr/loacl/MATLAB directory so that I could install additional plugins to my MATLAB. But later closed the root access to the directory.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong ?

  • After fixing refrain from using sudo nautilus or sudo gedit commands. – doug Oct 8 '17 at 19:56

This should be owned by you, so do one of two things:

  1. Change owner to your user:

    sudo chown user.user ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home
  2. Delete it:

    sudo rm ~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/home
