after install "gksudo nautilus" no longer works.

Asked by T. W. on 2010-06-06

after install "gksudo nautilus" no longer works in terminal, i get an error saying:

Nautilus could not create the required folder "/root/.config/nautilus".
Before running Nautilus, please create the following folder, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create it.

I tried mkdir .config/nautilus and it tells me the folder already exists?

Please Help.

hello,

did u create in the exact path he were complaining? mkdir -p /root/.config/nautilus ?

T. W. (tomtwix4) said : #2

ended up doing it by steps with: mkdir

next time i'll remember: mkdir -p
