Kill nautilus.

Thanks Carlos.

Nautilus might be the culprit.
When I login to my KDE3 session several gnome programs are started:
nautilus, gconfd-2, polkit-gnome-au, gnome-do, gnome-do (copied from
the result of ps -u myusername).

How can I prevent them from starting in my KDE3 session?
Why are they started at all, and what is the way to configure them?

Nautilus is not a "normal" file browser, it also does special tasks
inside gnome, like drawing the icons in the desktop. You should never
run it outside gnome, because it has unexpected side effects.

I think killing it should be enough, I don't remember what mechanism
it uses to start again in a new session, if it does, in kde. Kde has
an autostart folder, I think, so look in there. KDE users may know
how to tell kde not to start it again.

It is not the first time I have seen this problem, but I don't
remember how to finally stop it from reocurring.

The rest of the programs you see running will disappear when you stop
nautilus, they are auxiliaries.

This is what prompted my original reply to check the settings
in /etc/sysconfig ... I realize now that Istvan's experience and
circumstances are quite different, but the 'stickiness' of certain
gnome desktop items, as unwanted artifacts when I returned to kde, was
similar. This may be different now, but I learned back then to always
use YaST's /etc/sysconfig editor to switch both items when wanting to
change desktops. That procedure avoided unwanted artifacts / behaviors.

I regularly run gnome and whenever nautilus or something under it's
control misbehaves I just issue 'killall nautilus' which, in gnome,
kills it and it automatically starts again. No idea how it behaves
under kde :-)
