Sessions do not work with Nautilus

II wanted to try a different file manager, like Nautilus, but saved sessions cannot open Nautilus after a reboot. Works with most applications but Nautilus and a few more do not work. I wonder what can I check, how to debug. How is Sessions working?

Re: Sessions do not work with Nautilus

Have a look at your ~/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session* saved sessions file and you will see the nautilus executable saved as:

Legacy0_Command=org.gnome.Nautilus

...so it's saving the executable as "org.gnome.Nautilus" (the class name) instead of just "nautilus" (the executable).

Might be related to this bug report.

A quick workaround is to create a /usr/local/bin/org.gnome.Nautilus executable file with the following content:

#!/bin/bash

exec /usr/bin/nautilus

...and make sure it is executable.

Thanks!

I did that but it simply opens up a single window (no more than that) + won't remember the file paths. And this happens to other applications too.
