Xubuntu - xfce is constantly disabled


I'm running dapper, and I have at one point installed nautilus in Xubuntu. All was well till I did some USB stuff, and since then xfce is regularly disabled. I don't know what triggers it. The only thing I can do about it is to check the box "allow Xfce to manage the desktop" in the desktop preferences in the desktop setting manager. The box is automatically unchecked by something, anybody an idea by what???

Regards,

Peter

I believe nautilus handles the gnome desktop so it is probably starting up and interfering with xfdesktop. have you tried thunar?

yes, I tried thunar, but as per spec, it doesn't handle networked file systems ...

true, you'd have to mount them yourself; but then you could use thunar.
