gnome home folder and trash folder
i'm having trouble with my gnome desktop home folder and trash folder. sometimes when i try to open them, i get an error msg saying nautilus has nothing capable to view this, but it opens it anyways. and most of the other times, it just doesn't do anything. before i formatted my computer, i had RH9, and one day out of the blue it was doing the same thing i'm having trouble with now. i realy wouldn't mind just getting them off my desktop completely, but i would prefer to fix this problem first before i do get rid of them...if it's possible. thnx

Gnome actually uses Nautilus to draw the desktop (icons and all), and therefore if there's a prob with the desktop icons, that's the source. In earlier versions you could disable Nautilus from drawing itself to the desktop, in favor of just using the root window, but last time I checked this is more difficult to do (as anything designated "advanced" is effectively hidden from the user). Personally, I'd recommend KDE. There's more eye candy, and all of the configuration is at your finger tips, but still very intuitive and fun to use.

Anyhow, try looking in your ~/. dirs, as well as ~/Desktop. Other than that, I wouldn't know, as I rarely use Gnome ever anymore.
