1 I'm not sure I can answer your question exactly; I'd venture to say that
2 you probably can be rid of Nautilus entirely. But achieving the UI
3 result you're looking for at least is simple; Gconf can turn off the
4 background icons. In gconf-editor, browse to
5 /apps/nautilus/preferences/X, where X is 'desktop_is_home_dir' and
6 'show_desktop'. Un-set those items, and the background will disappear.
7 Without that necessity, at least on my system, Nautilus never loads
8 unless you order it to explicitly.
