Unhappy Xtra Icons??




okay for just once I decided to go with Gnome and then I returned to KDE, and it looks like the Gnome Icons have
followed me back to KDE?? How do I rid these Xtra Icons
permanently.... I delete them everytime I first enter KDE..

but shouldn't there be a way to permanently get rid of them

Were you running Nautilus and did you have it set to draw the desktop?

No, you don't want to use Nautilus. If you have the 'Gnome (or is it just GNU?) Midnight Commander' installed, then use that. It will put some icons on your desktop (for your home directory and devices) the first time you run it... if you don't have it and want to use Gnome, either install it from your cd or get it off the internet. It will be under your Gnome menu as 'File Manager'.

And 'rm -r ~/Nautilus' should solve the problem. If that isn't what is causing the problem 'rm -r ~/.gnome-desktop' should. Note the dot before 'gnome-desktop'. And make sure Nautilus isn't set to start up when you start Gnome (Menu->Settings->Control Panel->Session->Startup Properties).. I think that's right... I'm not in Gnome right now :-).
