Description Sam Putrensky 2003-12-01 14:38:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4)

Description of problem:
The help screens for the Nautilus file manager indicate that Nautilus
control of the Desktop can be turned off by using Edit -> Preferences
-> Desktop & Trash.  When I open the Preferences dialog, it sontains
only four tabs:  Views, Behavior, Icon Captions, Preview.  It does not
contian the indicated tab, and I cannot see how to disable the Desktop

If this feature has been removed from this version of Nautilus, or if
there is some other way to control the desktop, the Help screens
should be updated to match the application's behavior.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on 'Home' Folder on Desktop
2. In Nautilus main window, choose 'Preferences' from Edit menu
3. Prefs window does not contain a Desktop & Trash tab, as the Help
screen indicates it should.

Expected Results:  Tab should be present

the help needs to be updated. disabling the desktop now needs to be
done using gconf-editor.

This seems to have been fixed in the docs.
