Fluxbox disappeared after installed Nautilus (gnome was installed instead)


Hi
I had just installed fluxbox on debian and everything was working fine.
I was looking for a file browser then I've installed nautilus.

Quote:
#aptitude install nautilus
then, it shown me a message stating that some other packages would be installed, ok.. I agreed.

now, my window environment is the GNOME =/
I just wanted to have nautilus...

how can I reverse all that stuffs and have my fluxbox working again?

thank you

The problem is that nautilus prints the GNOME pinboard onto the root window. Try running nautilus with the --no-desktop option.

Oh, you're saying that it uninstalled fluxbox? Or just that you can't run fluxbox?

I've been very pleased with Thunar as an alternative to Nautilus, but if you like nautilus you can still have it. What distro are you on? Basically, what you need to do is when GDM/KDM/XDM?Quingy comes up, you need to select "Session" and pick fluxbox from there. Then it will probably ask you if you want to make that default - say yes. Then just be careful that every time you run nautilus, you use the --no-desktop option. Just add that option to the executable in your .fluxbox/menu file.
