    Default Nautilus Trash is broken

    openSUSE 11.3 with GNOME. Every time I try to open up the trash, it gives me an "operation not supported" error, and starting nautilus from the terminal doesn't give me any output. I've tried removing the ~/.local/share/Trash and ~/.nautilus folders for both my main user and root and restarting nautilus, all to no avail.

    Also, nothing in nautilus that starts with protocol:// works, like network or burn (or trash).

    My only lead so far is that I messed up something in the glib runtime, since I've been working on a project that depends on a lot of GNOME and glib libraries, and have compiled a few from source. But since I can't find any sort of log from nautilus, I have no idea what the cause actually is.

    I downloaded Thunar, and it can open up the trash no problem, so it's nautilus-specific.

    If you create a new user, does the problem persist?

    Yes, creating a new user doesn't help.

    I'm looking into testing out one of the 11.4 milestone releases anyway, so after that I doubt the problem will be relevant, at least for a while. But if someone else runs into this problem, I'd like to know what the cause is, and if there's a way to fix it.

    Never experienced it.
    Cause = Possibly fiddling and or experimentation beyond the realms of the considered norm.

    But that the new user has the same problem: Tells me you have a problem deeper than just some user settings.
    It could be interesting to see your repo list:

    The 11.4 install didn't go very well, so I went back to a fresh 11.3. The trash worked again at first, but now again doesn't. I'm almost certain I haven't done enough experimentation to break it, but it broke again.

    Code:

    My nautilus package version is 2.30.1-3.16. Could it be a bug introduced in an update?

    I did a full update, and the problem still persists.

    The annoying thing is that I can't even find an error message. Starting nautilus from the terminal doesn't display anything, and I can't find any config or log files. =/

    I found the problem. I compiled a newer version of glib from source into /usr/local, and removing it fixed it. It must have been a conflict between gvfs and the new glib.

    On the plus side, I finally got around to updating my system. =)
