View Full Version : Exploding "Starting File Manager" after getting transparency

February 13th, 2011, 05:18 AM
So I've been working with trying to get a number of desktop effects going, and I've got most of what I want, but have hit a snag. Every time I try to change something in my theme now, I get an obnoxiously large series of "Starting File Manager" windows in the taskbar, and whatever I try to do fails. Currently, I've got a series of vertical blue lines as my background in place of the picture I tried to put up when I noticed this.

The last thing I did before I noticed this was install some Murrine themes so that I could get partial window transparency. However, it could as easily have been a problem with Emerald or CompizConfig. I'm not entirely sure what information to post; any ideas?

Nevermind, I fixed it by upgrading Nautilus, which must have fixed whatever the problem was. I expect I accidentally installed an outdated package or something; some of the guides I've been using are pretty old.
