I've upgraded my Fedora box from 6 to 8 and now I experience the following problem:
When I login with a new/old user using the Gnome environment, I could not browse my home directory using Places->Home Folder.
Could not open location 'file:///home/user'
There is no default action associated with this location.
I think that I am missing a config file that specifies various environments. Although these configs should be copied from the skel if I create a new user...
