Default Opening Nautilus changes KDE plasma desktop to Gnome desktop

Due to some longstanding bugs in Dolphin I must occasionally use the
Gnome file manager Nautilus for specific operations. However, whenever
I open Nautilus the KDE desktop is replaced by the Gnome desktop. The
KDE Plasma panel remains as it is, and no Gnome panels appear.

What could cause this, and how can I prevent it? This is on Kubuntu
10.10 with KDE 4.6 beta 2. Thanks!

You could try starting Nautilus frome the terminal with the command "nautilus
--no-desktop --browser" (can't remember if it's supposed to be two dashes or
one)

Thanks, Isak, I will give that a try.

If it's working you might want to change the Exec line in
/usr/share/applications/nautilus.desktop (unless there already exists a
nautilus-no-desktop file there, or if you have multiple desktop environments
installed)

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, the flags that you mentioned helped.
Instead of altering the system wide setting, I wrapped
/usr/bin/nautilus in ~/bin/nautilus with the flags and "$@". Thanks!

Dotan,

Could you share exactly what you did -- I'm going to install Ubuntu 10.10, then kubuntu-desktop
(to overcome sound issues) on my daughter's box and I don't want her to accidentally open
Nautilus.......

Nigel, I just now noticed you post. I put this script in my user's bin:
✈demios:~$ cat /home/dotancohen/.bin/nautilus
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/nautilus --no-desktop --browser "$@"

Of course, ~/.bin is in my path and the script is executable. Note,
however, that it cannot be opened with Krunner (the Alt-F2 dialogue):
