    Oddest Desktop Behavior, Assistance Needed


    It's been a while, hey? This place looks so different. I like the changes.

    So, I've got this oddest problem with my desktop. My Window Manager seems to be KDE (ie, task bar, window decoration, default programs) but my desktop is running Gnome (desktop image, desktop right click, desktop icons). What the heck? It's only my login, so I know it's a setting somewhere. I don't recall ever changing anything to make it that way. I can tell you my Display Manager is GDM, but it's always been that so I don't see why that would matter.

    I was running Mandriva 06 with KDE 3.4. I recently upgraded hoping that would solve the problem to Mandriva 07 with KDE 3.5. No luck.

    Anyone have this problem before or know what I can do to fix it, short of deleting the user and starting over?

    A ps showed me nautilus was running as the DM. I killed it, saved the session and restart and voila!
