This seems to be the same problem as already reported in Bug #1569970

Do you receive the same kind of error messages when trying
gksudo nautilus
and/or
sudo nautilus
?

I received the error message for both sudo nautilus and gksu nautilus...

Why are you running Nautilus with gksu ?

Rikku (rizzy) said : #4

Running nautilus with gksu because I want root access to my drive.

Yes but to achieve what? It's rare to need access like that on a day to day basis. You'll work inside your home folder

Can you help with this problem?
