Hello All,

I was recently in the middle of a remote session unzipping some files for an install and all of a sudden an error message popped up stating that Nautilus failed to start or failed. Ever since then if I log into a remote session all I can see is the menu bar at the bottom and I am unable to browse files, see the background or even launch "This Computer". I have been trying to find a solution all morning and have been unable to do so. Any help is greatly appreciated. I get the following errors if I run nautilus from command line:

# nautilus

(nautilus:27271): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

The same goes for gnome-session:

# gnome-session

(gnome-session:27286): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Thank You

Legend
