Several Mate problems.
I'm running sabayon 11 with mate and dual monitors with different resolutions.
I wish to remove the default mate desktop icons (computer, home, trash). I searched google on how to do this and installed mate-conf-editor. I followed the instructions and unchecked the respective keys in /apps/caja/desktop. Yet the icons still won't go away. The last time I installed sabayon this worked.
Problem number 2: How can I change the default file manager from caja to pcmanfm. So that when a drive is automounted it is opened with pcmanfm rather than caja. I also set this value in mateconf-editor.
Problem number 3: I set my theme to equinox evolution dawn and my desktop icons are visible and the text is easily read (white). However, after a reboot, the icon's text turns black and stays black until I change the them to something else and then back to Evolution Dawn.
I tried running mateconf-editor as superuser and non superuser. I had to set the options for each user. SU and non SU.
Can anyone offer any help or insight?
