All is in the question!
I want to run xfdesktop under gnome but i experienced some troubles...
For information i'm under gentoo.
When i type xfdestop in a term it runs fine and all is beautiful and i can enjoy the right clic menu ;D
But when i emerge (install) a programm sometimes xfdesktop is killed :cry:
So i test to insert the xfdesktop to the gnome's boot (whith desktop-->preferences-->sessions-->started programms)
But it sucks because when i startx xfdesktop is not running...
Does anybody have an idea about that? :?
Or does anybody know a soft to have a right clic menu who runs fine under gnome? :?
What happens if you set xfwm4 as the Window Manager in Gnome?
I must ask, why are you or why are you going to using/use Gnome?
i can't set xfwm4 by default because i'm running xgl/compiz and also because i don't know how to do under gnome
And the reason i go to gnome from xfce is xgl/compiz run better under gnome than xfce and some others things too.
But i love the right click menu from xfdestop ;D
Ok. Usually you do killall metacity && xfwm4 (or whatever WM you'd like to use) when you end your Gnome session save the settings. But now you might do killall compiz && xfwm4, don't know how it works though since I don't use XGL myself
Yes the right click menu is nice
metacity does not make the desktop
it's nautilus which do this
morever because i run xgl i does not use metacity but compiz
but when i test killall nautilus the process is killed but just after a new process is running and the nautilus desktop appears :-(
maybe another idea??
(because if "killall nautilus" should work i can create little script autostarted which can resolve my problem)
I thought if you could change the window manager you could use xfdesktop easier, but that might just not work, sorry about that
If you kill nautilus then run nautilus --no-desktop and then xfdesktop
yeah i thank about that but as i just said when i kill nautilus, a new nautilus come!
nautilus is an highlander! ;D
in fact i have to know what is the configuration file wich start the nautilus process at start
but i don't find :-(
Try this tip from the Gentoo Forum, it's the exact thing you're looking for
Hope it works for you aswell
yeah it s exactly the same but the guy does not explain how to disable nautilus at boot
that is exactly what i search :-(
but thank you for all geniux
Try posting a question, they'll most certain get a mail that someone have wrote something in the thread.
You could try adding:
nautilus --no-desktop &
to your .xsession if you have a graphical login otherwise in your .xinitrc
Hope you solve it
thank but i don't know where is .xsession or .xinitrc
i dont find them in my home folder???
Then create one of them, in this example you've got a graphical login manager:
nano -w .xsession
nautilus --no-desktop &
then hit ctrl+x to save the file
I think that Gnome have an application that lets you decide what commands to use when logging in, unfortunately I cant remember the name though. But try the .xsession part first and see how it works
this does not work
i think i have to edit the configuration file which is used by gnome to start nautilus whithout the option --no-desktop
Ops, making .xsession executable might work, sorry :oops:
chmod a+x ~/.xsession
I'm searching for that application at the moment but please try the command
Edit: You'll have to use the --no-desktop command in order to get xfdesktop to work
in fact the solution was more more simple ;D
i have to open gconf-editor, to go to desktop-->gnome-->background uncheck draw background
and have to go to Desktop-->Preferences-->Sessions-->Startup Programms
and add /usr/bin/xfdesktop
i found that during searching an option for compiz
and now there is no crash of xfdesktop
thanks for help dude!
the solution for french people: http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.ph … 78#p458478
edit: is it possible to edit all the right clic menu with $.config/xfce4/desktop/menu.xml?? or is it simply like the menu-editor in the settings section?
Great that you solved it
