I've installed macports and then done 'sudo port install nautilus' to install nautilus, which all works fine. Now i'm not sure how to actually run nautilus - there's no app in the applications, and if i do 'nautilus' from the terminal it simply throws up a lot of errors.

Am i missing something?

Thanks

And the errors are below:

:~ $ nautilus

Is X11 running? –  user588 Feb 9 '11 at 1:27
    
It starts XQuartz automatically when i run the 'nautilus' command, is that the same thing? –  Chris Feb 9 '11 at 1:50
    
yes that is roughly the same thing. –  user588 Feb 9 '11 at 2:30

This problem sounds like you did not set up dbus yet. Read the output of the command port notes dbus and follow the instructions.

$ port notes dbus
dbus has the following notes:
  ############################################################################
  # Startup items have been generated that will aid in
  # starting dbus with launchd. They are disabled
  # by default. Execute the following command to start them,
  # and to cause them to launch at startup:
  #
  # sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.freedesktop.dbus-system.plist
  # launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
