Nautilus is having some problem that it is not being able to open files.

When I tried to open opera, Vlc, chromium after I downloaded them from the browser I get this message.

If any body has a solution please share.

Could not display “/home/fowl/ Downloads/Picture 3.png’.

The location is not a folder.

OK

Are you installing Thunar File Manager? If yes, then try to uninstall the exo-utils package by typing this command on your terminal:

sudo apt-get remove exo-utils.

If the problem still exist, you might need to remove the thunar too:

sudo apt-get remove thunar.

It seems that this is a permission-related problem. Follow these instructions.

1) Type this code in terminal

sudo –s(After this command it may ask for your password type it carefuly otherwise you can’t go to next step )

cd /usr/bin

ls –l nautilus

Be careful about spaces.

Then, you will see some options like the ones below:

4 = read  

2 = write

1 = execute

0 = no permissions.

Use 4, 2 & 1.The command will be chmod 777 nautilus.

Then, the permissions will be changed. You can try your applications.

I hope this helps.
