Ximian Problem


I just upgraded to Nautilus 2.4.
Now, when I try to open the "My Computer" icon in Ximian, it says:

[ There is no action associated with "My Computer".
You can configure GNOME to associate applications with file types. Do you want to associate an application with this file type now?
x Cancel x Associate Application ]

Associating Nautilus doesn't work.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Are you sure your trying to open up and link, and not an actual Icon file labeled "My Computer? Try right clicking and selecting properties to see if its still a directory.

Where can I see if it's still a directory?

This is how it looks like:

Ah, it does say the Icon is an x-application, not an actual link to a directory. Tthis leads me to believe that your upgrade to 2.4 deleted a program that used to automatically show you a summory of your computer when you clicked it. If you remember what directory it used to point to? Perhaps, /home/username? You can open a terminal, browse to /home/username/Desktop Type, rm "My Computer" Getting rid of the icon. Then ln -s /home/username "My Computer" Should place a new icon on your desktop for you. That would lead to your home directory. YOu can link it to any directory with that command.
