Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447446
Nautilus does not show desktop after startup
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:46 EST
Description of problem:
After system logon no file manager is started and desktop does not display any
icons. An attachment shows the bug. This happens not always, but roughly 1/3
times the system starts. Also no greeting sound is played (but the sound system
works OK in other applications), tray applets mixed and loose their usual
positions. Sometimes network connection tooltip appears in the middle of screen,
not in the right lower corner as usual.

Probably an upstream bug:
I see this issue on my dual-core2 Fedora 9 desktop from time to time. Running "killall nautilus" forces Nautilus to restart, which always fixes it.
same on my system, dell optiplex gx280. i corroborate prior poster, "killall nautilus" fixes it every time.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
