Try this from a post on the Ubuntu Forums:


Alt+F2 and in the window that opens, type Nautilus

When the file browser opens,right click on a folder and select Open with Other Application and then select File Browser then Open.

You should now be able to open folders in the Places menu.

Hope it works for you.

Hello there, Thanks for trying. When I did what you describe I got:

Could not open location 'file:///home/vforce/Nautilus'

Error stating file '/home/vgforce/
Nautilus': No such file or directory
