I'm running XubunTOS in as a client under VMWare Server 2.0. It didn't come with the nautilus command, so I installed it. As soon as I did all my desktop icons disappeared.
Looking at forums,I saw that I should run gconf-editor and be sure nautilus was set to show_desktop. It is, to to be sure I toggled the value twice. Still no joy. Ideas?
btw, possibly related, I was installing the nautilus command so I could browse my network. But when I run nautilus, it doesn't find it. I have another VM of the pure Ubuntu that can browse my network just fine.
