Ubuntu: sudo nautilus error in 16.04


I'm trying to set up localhost with these instructions

Now at step 11 I'm supposed to open nautilus in terminal but whatever I do it throws some error at me.

I tried reinstall and update nautilus with no luck; the same errors appear after using sudo nautilus.

This is what the error looks like.

(nautilus:4594): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_interface_skeleton_unexport: assertion 'interface_->priv->connections != NULL' failed  (nautilus:4594): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_interface_skeleton_unexport: assertion 'interface_->priv->connections != NULL' failed  (nautilus:4594): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_icon_theme_get_for_screen: assertion 'GDK_IS_SCREEN (screen)' failed  (nautilus:4594): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid (NULL) pointer instance  (nautilus:4594): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_signal_connect_object: assertion 'G_TYPE_CHECK_INSTANCE (instance)' failed  

I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu. I tried to google for the errors but without luck.

In Ubuntu I only replaced gnome network with wicd network manager

thanks in advance for any suggestions or help



These are not errors. These are warnings and all warnings are to be ignored.

With that said, you should use sudo -i to run gtk applications with sudo.

sudo -i nautilus  

These warnings are normal and are to be ignored safely.

Although a fix is not necessary, there is a workaround.

The only work around requires you install the development files:

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev  sudo gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache  sudo killall nautilus  

That should take care of most of the warnings.

If you don't like to see output in the terminal after running the command, you can use the nohup command like so:

nohup sudo -i nautilus  


nohup sudo -i nautilus &  

Again, in the future, you can ignore warnings like these unless there is a problem running the application.
