Nautilus and Light Windowmanagers

Filed under
Linux

"Running Nautilus (Gnome Content Manager) or other application that needs D-Bus inside light windowmanagers like Fluxbox can become a problem. D-Bus supplies both a system daemon (for events such as “new hardware device added” or “printer queue changed”) and a per user login session daemon (for general IPC needs among user applications). Desktop managers such as KDE, Gnome and Xfce start D-Bus with their session manager, but Fluxbox and the light windowmanagers often do not provide any session manager and in this case D-Bus must be started by yourself."
