Nautilus cannot handle computer locations (Debian Sqeeze, Gnome 2.30.2)


Hello,
from yesterday I am experiencing weird problem with Gnome 2.30.2 on my Debian installation. I can't open "Computer" from places, also, partitions which are not explicitly defined in fstab are not mounted automatically.

(Mostly this is problem because of hot plug devices, mounting them by hand everytime seems to be as kind of inflexible solution to me).

Could you please point me out to solution?


I don't know much about Gnome and whole X.org, so I may miss something quite general.

Thanks for help.

Did it ever work?

What you start the Nautilus file manager, can it see your file system?

Yes,
it worked until yesterday (maybe few days ago, I don't use nautilus much). I am not sure about what you meant with "can it see your file system", I can use it without problems though, the only two I've noticed so far are those "Computer locations", and mounting devices not in fstab.
