Thread: Home folder does not show its contents

  1. #1

    Default Home folder does not show its contents

    Hi All,
    I'm using opensuse 11.1 and running Gnome.

    Since yesterday, the contents of my home directory dont open up in nautilus nor do they show up in terminal.

    Nautilus just tells me that its searching and terminal is blank waiting for output.

    Meanwhile just a normal ls lists the contents but not ls -a.

    Totally clueless as to what to do.

    Please help

    Thanks in Advance

    open a terminal and when this file opens, paste the contents here. DO this;

    gnomesu gedit /etc/fstab

    Or just:

    cat /etc/fstab

    as any old user.

    Good luck.

    Default Re: Home folder does not show its contents

    If i presume that the file is /etc/fstab then what contents do i add in there??

    Seems like the answer is incomplete.

    Unable to understand.

    Please be a little clearer

    Unless you post the contents of the file we can't help

    cat /etc/fstab

    in a terminal - copy and paste here:

    Change to

    Code:
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST3500620AS_9QM52LKN-part3 /home                ext3 defaults 1 2

    > /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST3500620AS_9QM52LKN-part3 /home
    > ext3 acl,user_xattr 1 2


    and, in addition to changing as caf4926 said, i'd have to wonder HOW
    and WHEN did "defaults" get changed to "acl,user_xattr"..
