I've done the following in the meantime trying to solve two warning
messages when I start nautilus
Eel-CRITICAL **: eel_preferences_get_boolean: assertion
`preferences_is_initialized ()' failed
1. renamed gfs-metadata in .local/share
One user reported this fixed his problem
gfs-metadata corrupted. Didn't work for me.
2. Added a ppa <https://launchpad.net/%7Eerez-volk/+archive/nautilus>
for the eel_critical bug.
Did this, and the message went away but no solution to my unresponsive
Now still left with (nautilus:3670): WARNING **: No marshaller for
signature of signal 'UploadFinished'
which is a nautilus warning referred to here
basically some extensions not being loaded properly.
Haven't yet removed them. Wish I had a magic spell. So getting there
slowly. From the looks of things, I might have to remove and purge
nautilus and reinstall and this might effect gnome also, so I'm not a
happy camper right now.
Thanks for the support.
