Unhappy Problem with xfce4 Desktop


Hi all,

Here's the story of my problem :

I am having Xfce4.2.3.2 and Gnome sessions installed in Fedora Core 3 .When i using my xfce session suddenly i am getting Gnome Desktop.
That is with that three icons(Computer,shortcut to home directory and trash) but xfce panel remains .

When i right click it in desktop i'm getting the popup which will appear in Gnome session instead of Xfce popup.When i logout and login i am getting the xfce screens.

what is my problem . Please tell me to solve it .

Thanks

I think you somehow accidentally ran nautilus. Run "ps ex" in a terminal as a normal user and then kill the process number/s that corresponds to nautilus.

You're somehow starting Nautilus I guess. Nautilus is the Gnome file manager (whe window that opens when you open some directory), and nautilus also handles Gnome desktop, mouse menu and so on. If you are using XFCE and launch either Nautilus or some target that uses Nautilus to open itself, you end up with having XFCE panels etc. but having Nautilus handle the desktop system. That's a nasty problem, and back in the days with old KDE I had the same problem with the early Gnome version, having both KDE and Gnome overlap each other.

Solution: figure out where/how you get to run Nautilus and stop doing that.

that's it , saving session nd restoring it is what is running nautilus every time .
you should kill nautilus then save session then logout .
moreover xfce by default doesn't use desktop file , it could
be that nautilus has created desktop file for xfce and you should undo that .
see howto on creating xfce session fot gdm :
http://www.xfce.org/index.php?page=d...tation&lang=en
look at setting up gdm
