Description of problem:
The first time I had this happen, I was logged into KDE as a regular user, I had
su'd into root, and opened nautilus from the command line, and I saw what I
clearly recognized as the root desktop as it appears in GNOME. Just to clarify
that, as a regular user, (as I experimented to see if I actually had root
priviledges) I not only had the root desktop from a completely different desktop
environment, but I also had full root priveledges. But the problem still occurs
in whatever account I login under.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into KDE
2.Open Nautilus from the command line (other ways may do it, I'm not sure, but
this way always does it)
3.You KDE desktop is now a GNOME desktop (The taskbar remains KDE)
Actual Results: The KDE desktop (which is my default) becomes a Gnome desktop
Expected Results: I expected Nautilus to open, and I expected my KDE desktop to
remain KDE, and not turn into a GNOME desktop
I am running Red Hat Linux 8.0, all official updates have been applied, AMD
Duron 650 mhz CPU, about 393 megabytes of RAM, and I installed EVERY package
(1400+, not sure of the exact number). Oh yeah, I did a fresh install, not an
nautilus should not be available in the GUI when running KDE, for this reason
among others. You aren't supposed to run nautilus in KDE.
The right fix for this requires coordination between kdesktop and nautilus.
Hmmm. It seems the ugly kde hack workaround we had for this has been disabled.
I'm re-enabling this in nautilus 2.1.91-7.
It seems to work too.
