Hi all,
I see many people have problems with Nautilus grabbing control of the desktop when running xfce.

Does anyone know what is the best practice for passing command line options to Nautilus (i.e. --no-desktop --browser) when Nautilus is the preferred application for file browsing under xfce?

I think thunar is the default file manager under xfce.

Yes it is but I would like to use Nautilus with the commandline options --no-desktop and -browser.

Is it best practice to create a shell script called nautilus that launches nautilus with the desired options and if so where should it go ?

Make a shortcut icon and attach the command with option you want.
(how to make a icon? I don't know, I run iconless desktop... Cool

or put the script in /usr/local/bin and chmod +x, you can invoke
from anywhere...

or make a alias in /home/<username/.bashrc and call it with shorter name
from command line...

Many thanks.

Which method would be considered 'best practice' within the aptosid community?

Hi All,
Can I assume that there is no 'Best Practice' when it comes to preferred applications that do not come with the standard distro.

I am new to aptosid/debian and do not want to polute my installation as a result of my ignorance.

Hi All,

I am new to Debian, please could you direct me to the right place to find out what is the best practice for passing run-time/command line parameters to applications that are referenced by Settings/Preferred Applications ?
