In KDE, aterm uses GNOME background rather than KDE background for transparent backgr


I am running Mandrake 10.1 O on a Toshiba laptop.

I use KDE, primarily. My configurations have different desktop backgrounds (wallpaper) under KDE and GNOME.

I use aterms with transparency. Everything was fine until I ran nautilus, once (in order to write a DVD) from KDE. Then all my aterms switched to showing the GNOME background rather than the KDE one!! Moreover, this problem persists to subsequent logins and reboots and to new aterms!

Anyone know why, or how to fix it?
Thanks!
Chris

Use Control Centre to set your preffered applications as mail, test editor and console.

Huh? Sorry, I don't understand. Is this relevant to my question? If I run "aterm" from an icon or from shell, I get a transparent aterm with the WRONG BACKGROUND....
Thanks!

I'm not really sure but maybe try ps aux and see if nautilus is running, maybe it set itself to startup or something nasty like that. Just a FYI, k3b is a KDE app and is way better than nautilus for burning but you can start nautilus with the --no-desktop argument and that should avoid these types of problems

SOLVED

Thanks, DJ P@CkMaN!!
Yes, it was, and I believe KDE was starting it up for me upon kdestart. So I killed it and resaved my desktop. Thanks!!
I found nautilus much easier than k3b for burning ISO's (you just right-click on the file and choose burn!), but yes, I like k3b now better for anything else.
Ah, good tip on no-desktop. Thanks!
