Can you open it from a terminal? I could be a GUI bug.

When you open a terminal, type cd (just plain cd) to make sure you are in your home directory, then type ls nothing is there?

You need to be more specific, what happens when you type

Code:
cd /home
Also, what does it print out when you type:

Code:
locate home

type :
nautilus
in the terminal and see if it opens, if not what error outputs ?
and when you first open a terminal while logged in as your normal user and type :
pwd
what does it output .?

I don't have slackware and this may not apply, but if it is an icon on your desktop, you may need to double click it . I recall having to do that with Gnome a while back for desktop icons on my system.. I don't remember but left clicking on it might give you a drop down to select from.

Wait a second... when you say click, you really mean click don't you? Have you tried double clicking...?

HAHA...come on man! I am not that retarded. Give me some credit. I can manage to build a kernel, but not think to double click an icon first before i post a new thread? Sorry, alot of stress lately.

matrix@Linux~Powered:~$ nautilus
nautilus: error while loading shared libraries: libcdda_paranoia.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
matrix@Linux~Powered:~$ pwd
/home/matrix
matrix@Linux~Powered:~$


Looks like i have some installing to do. Not really even that important. I would rather do everything from the command line, but if it doesn't work i want to get it going anyways.
