Gnome Quite a little interesting tidbit on Planet GNOME today. As we all know, the default file manager for the GNOME desktop is Nautilus. While there's nothing inherently wrong with it, it does have this odd interface where actually more screen space is dedicated to controls and buttons than to the actual part that matters: your files. As part of Ubuntu's Papercuts project, a fix has been worked on.

RE: nautilus without gnome

Member since:

doesn't need gdm, it seems to need the window manager to be launched by dbus-launch, ie

dbus-launch --exit-with-session wmaker

(which is what I now have in my .xinitrc)
