Problem with Nautilus

I'm having a problem with Natilus. I've set it up so that the home folder opens when I hit the Win+E. It was working for a while but now I'm getting the following error:

Couldn't execute command: nautilus --no-desktop '/home/jthornton'

Verify that this is a valid command.
I'm using Mint Linux 11.

Any ideas?

I went to the terminal and typed in 'nautilus' and it said that it wasn't installed. That seems really weird.

I ran apt-get to install it and now it works fine.
