View Full Version : [ubuntu] ssh -X connection replaces my desktop

May 10th, 2009, 02:09 AM
I started an "ssh -X" connection to a school server and everything was fine until I ran "nautilus . &"

that command replaced my local desktop with the school account desktop. I used "ps -fu username" and "kill -9" to kill all processes that were running remotely, and that killed the icons, but the desktop on my local computer still has the desktop background of my remote account. weird. I don't know how to to fix this, other than logging out of my local account and logging back in. everything is fine then until I run "nautilus" again remotely.

help please? how do I disconnect cleanly from a remote server?

I'm not sure about disconnecting, but try running "nautilus --no-desktop" next time.
