It didn't really work I'm afraid. Those scripts seem to be best for
switching from nautilus to another file manager. The script that
switches back to nautilus simply restores backups of system files made
by the other scripts given. I don't have these backups. I have no idea
what emerge did to my configuration (it a shame that some of this
stuff isn't kept in /etc/ really, i think this would have stopped
portage trampling over my config!). I had a look at the files those
scripts act apon (in /usr/share/applications/ ) but i couldn't see
what's causing my places menu to open thunar! :(

Thanks anyhow,


PS I'm using version 2.16.3 of gnome if that helps....

Yea if you go to http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/nonautilusplease they have
scripts to change your file manager easily from nautilus, konqueror,thunar just
by executing the script.
