My problem is, listed in the first link. Something caused thunar to get kicked, it got somehow replaced with nautilus. It's not just an error, but it's not 'good' either. I mean, the other I just boot my computer and you literally see nautilus hijacking my desktop. Also, every window with files is controlled by nautilus. After a while, I encountered a more severe problem. The trashcan, I have to remove everything manually (so that is settled). I can find my way around this new way. But it's not good.

Any suggestions what could have caused this?
Can it be reversed? I like nautilus, but thunar is faster and better.

Re: XFCE hijack?

When nautilus was started it probably killed xfdesktop, also sounds like you then saved your session so nautilus is started when Xfce is.  Open a terminal, killall -9 nautilus then hit ALT+F2 and enter xfdesktop.  That should cure that, you'll also want to save your Session (Settings> Session and Startup Settings-> tick Prompt on Logout)

For future reference, if you do happen to use nautilus (ick, checkout Thunar!) run it like so; nautilus --no-desktop (maybe it was --nodesktop?)
