Running SuSE 10.1 here, I have KDE, Gnome, and XFCE installed. The default is to use XFCE.
No matter what I try (disabling startup services, and what not), I cannot seem to prevent Nautilus from being launched; which in effect disables XFCE desktop handling. Where do I need to start looking to stop Nautilus from running?
At the end of a smile, there is a laugh and a 1/2 [DAD]
to stop nautilus taking over the desktop run
gconftool-2 --type=bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop 'false
And how can you set Thunar to be the default filemanager for X?
E.g. in azureus, when I select "Show file" from the context menu, bloaty nautilus is launched.
In the Gnome Find File dialog, nautilus is also launched when I select "Show File".
Many more examples of this...
