window id, gnome-like desktop when show icons disabled (KDE, 2005 LE) + root-tail


Hello,

Trying to have root-tail to work under mandriva 2005 LE prooved to
be a problem (see http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=383461

Anyway, my question here is different,

What does your desktops (1&2) look like when you select the option
to disable showing the icons on the desktops?

On my PC, one of the desktop revert to some weird gnome-like theme and icons are still there although very much bigger and using different picture for them, but this happens on only one desktop.


Ok a bit of cross-posting, how do you make root-tail work under
mandriva 2005 LE then?


(PS: Last thing I can think of to try is root-tail with another user than
my normal user or root)

$ ls -l .kde/share/config/ksmserverrc this was were the problem was
incl bogus things such as
program1=kwin
program2=nautilus
program3=evolution-alarm-notify
program4=kmix

My kde profile is still corrupted (no sound after kdm login), but now root-tail works !! :-)

Right, I tried another user, and the desktops are fine if I disable the show icons option.

My desktop profile is gone stupid: I run kde only.
one desktop is KDE like, even once I disable the icons.

the other desktop is gnome like (the right hand click is a gnome menu,
and the kde icons disapear, but some gnome icons appear)

Weird. Will try to fix this up, although I do not know which file to tackle
Maybe in .kde? but which one...
