Nautilus starts every bootup and Desktop reverts

Nautilus starts every bootup and Desktop reverts

Postby Fornhamfred on Sun Aug 19, 2012 1:16 pm

I installed XFCE and changed the default desktop. After adding Awn dock and adding places to the dock, every time I bootup Nautilus opens and the desktop reverts back to the live cd version with icons for my computer, home and trash displayed.

Any help please.

if you don't need/want nautilus, uninstall it (most if not all the functions are covered by the file manager you already have installed, thunar)

Thanks

Do you know what is causing nautilus to open automatically and change the desktop?

It is useful to have nautilus as I use bookmarks to access the shared drives on my windows machine and it appears that although you can add bookmarks in Thunar they do not stick after rebooting.

well then it's a bit different, you do need nautilus, see this viewtopic.php?f=220&t=107701&hilit=+nautilus

To sum up the linked thread: run 'nautilus --no-desktop' rather than just 'nautilus.' You should also run gconf-editor, click apps, then nautilus, then preferences, and untick "show desktop."

I use a NTFS partition for all my data, the partition has a label off "500-data".
I created a folder in my user folder called "500-data"
I add this line to my fstab
Code: Select all
LABEL=500-data       /home/user/500-data   ntfs-3g  defaults,uid=1000         0      0

so no need for nautilus
