Description cje 2007-09-20 21:59:02 EDT
Description of problem:
nautilus sometimes doesn't start.  clicking on 'More' in the 'Files' section of
bigboard (which fails because my 'Desktop' folder has been renamed to a
different language) causes it (nautilus) to (re)start.

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

How reproducible:
often (most logins)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.select online desktop session
2.log in
Actual results:
blank white screen, no icons, right-click does nothing

Expected results:
regular nautilus-driven desktop with background, icons and context-menu.

This change was intentional; the idea was that the online desktop was focused
around the web, not local files.  However, I've reverted this change for now.

I hopefully fixed the Desktop translation issue in a new bigboard package just
Comment 2 cje 2007-09-27 13:02:53 EDT
i half-suspected it was deliberate.  i like the idea - was just a pain losing
the ability to have a desktop background.  if we could restore that
functionality and maybe still have a desktop context menu (and if it worked the
same at every login!) then i'd be all for it.  but i suppose i could just tell
nautilus not to show any desktop icons.  maybe we could just change the nautilus
desktop icon defaults in gconf?

oh, and i've tried the Desktop translation thing and that looks like it's
working just fine now.  :-)
