When file managers clash


Hello.

I am currently running Slackware 13.1, XFCE. Initially it was with Thunar, but then I changed it to Nautilus.(I also have GSB installed)

The thing is, the system is behaving unnaturally, and that would mean: I can no longer change the wallpaper, nor can I log out -- neither by CTRL+ALT+Bksp, or by clicking the airplane icon and conky is no longer steady -- comes and leaves as it pleases.

I've google-ed around, but I couldn't find any answers. If you have any idea, I'd be grateful.

Thanks,
Dino.

Tis is one of the reasons I don't use Xfce or Gnome. The desktop area in both environments is inextricably linked to the default file manager. Try to change it and you're going to run into trouble.

Too bad we're mere humans who can't resist the temptation of changing everything. (and thus breaking pretty much everything)

You might wanna try an independent file manager like PCManFM-Mod, which is better than PCManFM and works great for me

I have my own pre-made slackware pkg for it also 1.1.3

Thanks, mate, for your reply.
But I'm more interested in fixing the existing issue before starting making other blunders.
