Nautilus Restart Locked up my Ubuntu Computer?

+1 vote

I installed Dropbox and then it required Nautilus "to be restarted to function properly." When I clicked on "Nautilus Restart", my computer went locked up. Keyboard won't work and mouse arrow won't move around. I resorted to pushing the power button to shut the computer down. It happened in the previous version of Ubuntu 14.10 and then again in 15.04.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Your tips or help'll be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to figure out how to get my sever to come back up to operation on a power failure. Right now it comes up and gives me three choices. I don't want the bloody choices I just want it to straight reboot so can run it headless!

Any help appreciated.

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and facing problem with ubuntu? On my machine Skype starts, asks to log in and then presents its list of connections. However after a couple of moments the list of connections gets
"inactive" (greys out) and finally disappears.

In the crash window that then pops up I see that something with seems to be amiss.

Any idea what I can do to fix the problem and where do I find the info that is in the "crash report window" so I
could add it to this email if needed?

I had a couple *.iso disks in my CD/DVD drive recently. I had looked at the images, but did not install. Now, i have a software update prompt and when I go to install, I am asked to put the two iso's in the drive. If I cancel the request and try to continue with the updates, it fails to complete them.

My google efforts have failed to produce a solution to the problem. How do I clean this up so that I can get back to regular updates?

My computer was locking up and I couldn't open or close anything. I did a ps aux and found that dropbox was consuming 117% of the CPU and 70% of memory, after awhile I was able to Kill Dropbox and then I uninstalled it and now my computer is back to normal.
