Whats this error gibberish mean?


I wanted to access nautilus as root to move a folder from my desktop into /usr/share/themes. I successfully did it, but my terminal had this crazy output while I was moving the folder:
Initializing nautilus-gdu extension

What does this all mean?

When you start a GUI app from a terminal, you will sometimes get all sorts of strange stuff in the terminal (edit: especially a big program such as Nautilus; it also controls the Gnome desktop). If the program worked, I wouldn't worry about it.

For grins and giggles, you might try starting nautilus with the --no-desktop switch and see whether the output is different.

Troubleshooting

Hey

First I searched the error: net usershare returned error 255:

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-958457.html

Then started looking into nautilus issues: found this one, possible workaround and light explanation:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1592348

This one confirms the bugs and links them: ctrl-f=nautilus:

http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo

From what I understand of the output, is that you moved the folder and in doing so upset a few other programs. The programs were looking for the folder in the place it was last said to be, but it was not there. It looks to be a nautilus bug that is allowing this feedback. Possibly a gnome interjection due to the occurrence.

If you could please convey your ubuntu distro, gnome version, also what file / folder did you move, so that I can pin point the issue better. Thanks.

Hope this helps.

I have Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit, I have Unity, and I was moving a folder for a theme from my desktop to /usr/share/themes.
