How to Reset to Default File Manager for All Folders on Ubuntu 12.04


I keep getting the Failed to Execute Default File Manager for when I try to open files from Firefox. The other error I get is I can't use any shortcuts to get to folders from the panels. I only can use the desktop to get to any folder. Any ideas on how to fix this? I figured I could reset the File Manager. Can this be done? if so, how?

Try this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo apt-get --reinstall install nautilus
