Cinnamon changes wallpaper when I run gksudo nautilus

Postby escolar on Wed Apr 25, 2012 3:58 am

When I run gksudo nautilus with Alt+F2, or sudo nautilus from a terminal, Cinnamon changes the user wallpaper to the root wallpaper, even the PC and Trash desktop icons that I have disabled in the user session, but what are not disabled in root session, are in the desktop.
The wallpaper remains changed when I close the root nautilus windows, and I have to close the session (to see 'my' wallpaper) because Alt+F2+r doesn't work.

Cinnamon hasn't changed the wallpaper, Nautilus did. If you run Nautilus, at least to my knowledge, it will manage the desktop. So if you wish to run Nautilus I believe it has to be run as follows: nautilus --no-desktop.
Hope that was of some help.
