How do I make gnome stop runing nautilus?


I can't seem to get nautilus to NOT run, I don't know where I would configure that and I can't even kill it, killall nautilus closes it but then it just starts up again.

Help?

Back in the day, Gnome had an option for configuring it to start using something other than Nautilus. It seemed to be in the Gnome Control Center, however, that probably was back with 2.0 or possibly earlier release, so you might just be snipe hunting. I'll poke around and see if there is a way, I'd imagine there is, well, I know there is, but I imagine there is an easier way than modifying the code

Cool

Tell us your gnome version and distribution!

Assuming Fedora Core 2, that would be GNOME 2.6. In that case, I think the file you're looking for is $HOME/.gnome2/session

Try deleting the lines that would seem to be responsible for respawning nautilus. Untested, no guarantees.

Learn to use IRC (internet relay chat), solves your problems much quicker! You've probably got XChat installed, so start that, choose Freenode as your server, and one of #fedora, #suse, #debian etc. as appropriate for a channel. (I think Debian have their own IRC server, too.)

Yeah, you're right, there is a GUI, it's called Sessions, in the control centre. On the second tab, change the setting for nautilus to "Normal", and then kill it.

The GUI works for me: Fedora 2, GNOME 2.6.0

I think the user on the mailing list was pointing out that there is a command _in addition to_ the GUI.
