desktop and file manager problem


Hi, i recently restarted only to find I had no desktop short-cuts and i can not access file manager, every time I click on it some kind of error message flashes up something about nemo I think.
I am quite new to linux and would appreciate some help guys?

What are you doing on here now then? They're playing the farmers at Rugby Park as we speak.

Did you do anything that you can think of that may have caused the problem? Install updates perhaps?

Are you able to use the Terminal command line? If so, enter nemo-desktop on the command line and paste the output here.

That's unusual - it should have accepted that command. Try a simple nemo then.

Also, paste the output from inxi -S if you could. Thanks.

Could you let us know which command or action produced each output in your previous two posts.

Also, could you enclose the output within CODE tags (use the # button on LQ's advanced editor).

When you're posting here, you will either be using a simple edit window, which has a few icons at the top to help you format the post, or the advanced edit window (click on "Go Advanced" at the foot of the simple edit window to get this advanced edit window).

If you have a look at the icons near the top of the advanced edit window, there is one on the right-hand side that is a #.

Select some text in your post and then click on that # button to enclose it within CODE tags.

Code:
An example.
