home/$user directory files


I cannot see contents of home/user search hangs... any ideas on how
to fix? Can however go to subdirectories using Places/Bookmarks.
Search doesn't work either.
I was thinking it was a gconf problem but now am leaning toward gvfs troubles. Any help appreciated.

Does the user directory have both read and execute permissions (execute only would exhibit the symptoms you are describing)?

re:home/$user directory files

It was a .gvfs problem... http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=229819 shows the solution. Thanks for trying. [solved]
