Ubuntu – Nautilus exiting with segmentation fault after upgrade

11.10nautilussegmentation fault

I upgraded to UBuntu 11.10 yesterday from 11.04. Everything went smoothly except the fact that nautilus wont start anymore. It exits with a segmentation fault. Any idea how to stop this from happening. ?

:~$ nautilus
Initializing nautilus-open-terminal extension
Initializing nautilus-gdu extension

Best Answer

  • Remove the nautilus-open-terminal extension. This is causing problems right now and there is an open bug about it (see here).

    This bug is now marked as fixed. If you are still experiencing the problem you may have another problem.
