> file roller is not starting

What happens, any error message?
Any messages in .xsession-errors (hidden file in Nautilus)?
In case run it in a terminal and post error messages:
file-roller

I just cant open my personal folders,nothing happens,

Please be more specific and provide what you're trying to do exactly and which steps you've made before the issue occured.

Did you try to access your personal directory via places menu and it wasn't successful?
Did you try to open a folder in Nautilus (file manager) and it wasn't successful?

Please open a terminal (ctrl+T) and post the output of:
stat .ICEauthority
ls -l /home

You can also start Nautilus in a terminal by typing:
nautilus

Open the context menu of a folder with right click and verify that permissions are correctly set, you need to be the owner of the directory or file in your /home/user.

Sorry, the shortcut to open a terminal is: ctrl+alt+T

Hallo Aka Sam, the output in nautilus is;

Thanks for the outputs which look ok so far.
When typing nautilus did the file manager open?

And what happens by opening which folder, what's the exact path of it?
e.g.
/home/harry/path/of/my/folder

then e.g. type:
ls -al /home/harry/path/of/my/folder

What about .xsession-errors?

Aka Sam; h: /home/harry/path/of/my/folder: Bestand of map bestaat niet
harry@harry-System-Product-Name:~$
harry@harry-System-Product-Name:~$ ls -al /home/harry/path/of/my/folder
ls: kan geen toegang krijgen tot /home/harry/path/of/my/folder: Bestand of map bestaat niet

this is the output i got, how can i find .xsession-errors ?

Sam_ (and-sam) said : #10

harry,
that <path/of/my/folder> was just an example for a path.
The path is like an url where a folder or file is located.
So when you say you can't open a folder, you can either investigate it's status via right click and review properties and permissions or type complete path into terminal in order to review permissions there.

.xsession-errors is a hidden file in your /home directory.
Description #6.6.20

Can you help with this problem?
