This is a known bug with previous versions of a few packages, which I can't remember off hand. Run this following code in a terminal as your normal user:

Code:
cat /usr/share/applications/nautilus-home.desktop | perl -pe 's/Exec=nautilus --no-desktop/Exec=nautilus --no-desktop ./g;' > $HOME/.local/share/applications/nautilus-home.desktop

Try running nautilus from the command line and see if you get any errors or warnings. If you do, please post them.

Wrote "Nautilus" in the terminal, everything was there, could open any folder, nothing looked unusual... But still, "Places" refuses to co-operate.

Are you trying to open it from the desktop or the menu?

Post the output of the following within your home directory:

Code:
grep -i directory .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

Ok, before we go modifying this file, can you post the output of the following?

Code:
cat .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list

Edit the file to reflect the following:

Code:
application/pgp-encrypted=nautilus-browser.desktop;
application/x-deb=ubuntu-software-center.desktop;
inode/directory=mount-archive.desktop;nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;eog.desktop;nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;vlc.desktop;kde4-kaffeine.desktop;kde4-kmplayer.desktop;gimp.desktop;wine.desktop;brasero.desktop;file-roller.desktop;

If you need help trying to edit the file, run the following command:

Code:
gedit .local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
Then replace the contents with the above, save it, and close it out. Cheers!

No problem! Mark your thread as solved and add rep. Cheers, and good luck with everything else.
