KDE Icons in GNOME


I have noticed that when I use the Gnome desktop (Dropline) I always have double icons for System, Home and Trash. The KDE icons are apparently not the same ones that Gnome uses but if I delete them, they're is nothing when I go back to KDE.
Can someone help me figure out how to see only my Gnome desktop icons when I use Gnome and only KDE when I use KDE?
Thanks!

Are you somehow running a second instance of nautilus? Or are you running nautilus under KDE?

Or, are you getting KDE icons in addition to GNOME icons? If so, that's certainly strange.

I am getting KDE icons in addition to Gnome icons. And just as strange is that these icons are not functional in Gnome. But like I said, if I remove them, when I go back to KDE I will not have them or the Gnome icons.
I checked my processes and nautilus is only running one instance. I did not see if it runs under KDE yet.

Does this also happen under a fresh user account?

yes. If I don't ever use KDE then no but if I switch to KDE and back to Gnome I end up with duplicates that don't work - and that have different icons.
Thank you for helping. Hopefully you can guide me to a solution...

I'm not certain that I can. I actually don't have KDE installed on my machines, so I've not seen this before.

Is there any chance that you could create a fresh account, login to KDE, and then tar/gzip up the entire home directory (including hidden files) and upload them? If you don't have a place to upload it, then perhaps you could send it to me by email? I'm interested in what KDE is creating in the user's home dir after login.

Yeah, I can do that. I'll have to email it to you. I would like to know what's going on too. Those icons aren't working in Gnome and the Gnome icons don't appear in KDE.

Thanks. I just sent you a PM with my email address.

Maybe this will help: I created the new account and went to KDE. The only icon it gave me by default was "Trash". Maybe I stuck icons for Home and System there since I'm used to having them, but regardless, the additional Trash icon does appear in Gnome.
I'm sure I just created shortcuts to those other two but why aren't those basic icons the same for all window managers? Any application shortcuts I create are shared but the system-type icons are not - they duplicate.
