Nautilus crashed with SIGSEGV in update_dbus_opened_locations()

Hi with the help of others here I have just restored my borked Zorin 16 Core gnome desktop so that I now have a desktop OS again.

Everything seems to be fine except that I am now getting the following message popping up "The Application Files has Closed Unexpectedly"

The Title of the problem report is "nautilus crashed with SIGSEGV in update_dbus_opened_locations()"

Here is a screenshot of the report

There are a lot of bug reports on this issue. I have not seen a resolution, but perhaps others have and can chime in.

In the meantime, you may try reinstalling the packages:

sudo apt install --reinstall nautilus

Thanks again Aravisian. I will try your suggestions.

Prior to seeing your reply I had already ran

sudo apt install debsums

Then I checked the configuration files with

sudo debsums -sa

The above command found issues with libvirt and qemu-kvm packages that were installed the alongside MacOS kvm. I guess when I removed the MacOS kvm I needed to remove the qemu/libvirt packages that were left hanging around

I ran this command

sudo apt remove qemu-kvm libvirt-daemon-system

which successfully removed qemu and libvirt packages

Do you want to continue? [Y/n] Y
(Reading database ... 316838 files and directories currently installed.)
Removing libvirt-daemon-system (6.0.0-0ubuntu8.12) ...
Removing libvirt-daemon dnsmasq configuration
Removing qemu-kvm (1:4.2-3ubuntu6.17) ...

I will run your commands next to confirm that everything has been tidied up nicely.

Problem is still there.

I guess I will have to just put up with in until there is a bug fix?

You may consider using different File Manager as another option, too. I use Nemo File Manager as it restores a lot of functionality. You can also "minimalist" it, using the built in options to make it look a lot like Nautilus.

Thanks I will look at Nemo

You may also try

sudo apt install --reinstall zorin-os-desktop

Thanks I will try that first.
