    nautilus on server slow after ubuntu update

    Hi, I am a kind of newbie so be patient. I also posted this on bugreport. I often connect to a remote server with ssh and with nautilus thru samba (eg: smb:// ) . After an Ubuntu update ssh is all right, nautilus is extremely slow. Also the ubuntu desktop is irresponsive (cannot click on a second desktop but I can switch to it with Ctrl+Alt+arrows, cannot open an existing window but I can use Alt+Tab, old windows are not there etc).
    The update was the following:
    PHP Code:

    -xorg-video-intel (2:2.2.1-1ubuntu13.7to 2:2.2.1-1ubuntu13.8 
    Removing ufw does not help.

    Any help?

    Which Graphics Card do you have and which Graphics driver are you using?
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hi Devils Casper,
    thank you for your interest, you already helped me a lot in the past! This is the ubuntu machine I have at work. I noticed that if I close nautilus on the server location the computer becomes normal. Could it be the firewall or something? Anyway:
    aless@aless-desktop:~$ sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    [sudo] password for aless: 
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
    aless@aless-desktop:~$ grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    	Driver		"kbd"
    	Driver		"mouse"

    I did
    sudo apt-get remove xserver-xorg-video-ati
    sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
    and it fixed another problem occurring with the sound. I did the same with xserver-xorg-video-intel but no improvement with nautilus.
