Planned maintenance scheduled April 23, at I have Nautilus installed with a launcher, but would like to make it the default and get rid of Thunar. Hi, I like all file managers and don’t mind to use this or this. There are some permanent fixes here, but none worked for me: And still, after some time, there were things which I didn’t like, because it was not what I expected, but as I tell you I don’t remember what it was.

A nice way have your “own” system menu is to add a “quick file browser” on ‘kicker’ pointing to a directory where you create a few launchers like “nautilus –no-desktop computer: You will just have to create a new desktop launcher linking to Nautilus.

So for those with OB, stick with pcmanfm for the time being. Page was changed Aug Replaced ‘pcmanfm’ in my desktop launchers with ‘nautilus –no-desktop’ and unchecked “mount removable media automatically” in ‘pcmanfm’ to get rid of a DBus error message.


Another simpler way to get that is to call nautilus with the –no-desktop switch. It also uses hsetroot to set wallpaper. I’m going to run this for a while and olenbox how it pans out.
