x-caja-desktop - disable or remove[SOLVED]

x-caja-desktop - disable or remove[SOLVED]

Postby tonkycat on Wed Oct 23, 2013 2:52 pm

x-caja-desktop is launching itself multiple times. I have no use for this product. How do I go about either disabling it or just removing it? I have been looking all over to see where it gets defined and have been unsuccessful in my hunt.

If I do uninstall it, do I need to replace it with something else and if so what?

Thank you,
V J

A google (startpage.com, actually) search for x-caja-desktop produced this as first result: https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-se ... /issues/19

Looks like it's being worked on. I saw this too, the first time I logged in after installing MATE. However, it hasn't happened since.

I also found where is being worked on. But, the bottom line is that I have no use for it. Will it hurt to just uninstall it?
I have one remote login that keeps running it and locking up the computer.

Thank you,

Uninstalling caja isn't really an option, but the github thread offers a workaround (the entry dated 27 January 2013, by bhull2010).

Thank you. I saw the work around and it seemed like a complicated solution to just turn something off. But I will attempt the work around. If it doesn't solve my problem, I guess I can just convert to cinnamon.

Thank you,

Thank you again. I installed the work around on three computers running Linux Mint and I haven't seen the problem again.

I found this thread through a Google search. The Linux Mint Forums search function (http://forums.linuxmint.com/search.php) returned, "No posts were found because the word x-caja-desktop is not contained in any post." But here we are, looking at several posts on this topic. So let's not criticize people who post about already-covered issues. The search function is really poor!

The absurd opening of multiple x-caja-desktop windows at start-up happens only occasionally to me. bhull2010's solution in the linked GitHub posting looks complicated and I'm not sure how to reverse it if it should prove wrong. Has anyone actually tried this in Mint 16 MATE (64-bit) with 3.11.0-12 kernel and can vouch that it is safe? Notably, nothing in the recommended config file changes specifies "x-caja-desktop", only caja and caja-desktop.

Just for reference - there's a second issue on github that also contains a few workarounds.
