Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As a new slack user i was doing a little "experimenting" earlier. Goto /usr/bin and run Nautilus while in KDE. Everything seemed fine but then i notice on my KDE (3.1.4) desktop i now have Gnome icons instead of my regular KDE ones and my desktop wallpaper is gone!!!
If i right click on the desktop the menu is the gnome menu and not the KDE one. The main KDE menu and the task bar operate correctly still but not the desktop. I logged out and then back on and my KDE icons reappeared then w/in 10 seconds of KDE starting and coming to the desktop, the KDE icons and wallpaper disappear and the gnome ones are there? I tried to reboot and the same thing.
I have searched the forums and can't find any info on this. Has anyone else experienced this? How can i fix it? Thanks so much for any help!
IIRC, it is the ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc
You could edit this file or....
mv this file to ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc.old
logout and back in to create the new file. You may need some setting from the old file.
(RShaw) I searched all over Nautilus and even started gnome and looked for the option you mentioned. I also found an old post where you had suggested this to someone else. Under the nautilus>edit>preferences .. i do not have a tab labeled desktop and trash ... only the following tabs
views|behavior|icon captions|preview ...and they do not have the checkbox mentioned???
