After upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10, every time I am starting Nautilus, it's taking over my desktop. So, here's how to stop Nautilus from managing the desktop.

1. Move original Nautilus binary away

sudo mv /usr/bin/nautilus{,.real}

2. Create a shell script and save it as /usr/bin/nautilus

/usr/bin/nautilus.real --no-desktop $@
  1. Use it.
