it depends of what you installed

Code: Select all

cat /var/log/apt/history.log
and check the last entries (in doubt post the output of the the last day(s) here in the forum)

i don't have xfce installed at the moment, but you can easily check

Code: Select all

apt policy nautilus
if it's installed i believe it's safe to uninstall it (you have a file manager already :) )

There are more than one way it will somehow come up :lol:

by the way, xfce should already have its own screenshooter.
for mine, I would hit the "prt scrn/sysRq' button and a popup will appear. Give it a try to see if yours had it installed. it is called xfce4-screenshooter.

$ apt-cache policy xfce4-screenshooter
xfce4-screenshooter:
Installed: 1.8.0-2
Candidate: 1.8.0-2
Version table:
*** 1.8.0-2 0

does nautilus come installed in the xfce version of mint?

find out yourself by:
1. synaptic, type nautilus in search and see it graphically.
2. on terminal , type apt-cache policy nautilus and see what it says

yeah i forgot xfce had its own screen shot. i was more curious if nautilus comes with all the xfce installs? i don't remember installing it and though it would be odd to be included on xfce.

No you did not install it.

It comes from the release iso.
