I have Ubuntu 12.10, my Gedit suddenly stopped showing files on the file browser. It only shows folders. I can open any file on Gedit, but the file browser doesn't show the files on the current folder.
If I open Gedit through terminal: sudo gedit Then, I see the files, so I think this is an issue related to user permissions.
I tried reinstalling the application from Ubuntu software center and also by doing: sudo apt-get install gedit.
However, I still have the same problem: Starting Gedit from the Dash doesn't show any files.
Also, I tried this solution (Why won't gedit file browser plugin show files?), but it didn't work.
A screenshot: (Gedit shows 'empty', but there are several files inside the folder)
