Angry "Places" letting me down again!!!


Cannot open any folders from "Places". Tried to solve the problem the way I was told to do last time, but could not get it running... One shortcut that I have installed on my desktop is working, though. I have Ubuntu 10.10. Help, someone?

Can you post the contents of your .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list file? It's in your home directory.

Haha, yes, now I remember. Sorry about that...

Can you still open them through nautilus itself?

You can always try to rebuild gnome-panel. Found this code on the ubuntu site:
Code:
gconftool-2 --shutdown
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel
Note that this removes all customization of the panel.

Found it!!!

I went to Nautilus, chose a file, chose "open with other something", then clicked on filebrowser and that's it!! Now "places" is back to business. (Feel like a real expert on this, piece of cake!).

Damn, you beat me to it man. I was going to say that next, I swear.... That is a common problem that keeps popping up all over the internet. Glad you got it figured out though man.

Cheers,
