probably why it keeps "coming back" :-) .

Actually, it brings up Nautilus, which does not have a pyramid looking
icon anywhere.

I don't mind removing it twice, it's just annoying.

Is your solution for KDE? The only file manager link under GNOME (in
Menu->Other) is also Nautilus....

You posted the question in Ubuntu so my answer referred to Ubuntu and not KDE. Nevertheless, Gnome also uses Nautilus so you should also see the Pyramid-looking thngie - unless KDE is doing some fiddling with the display.

Here is what I am talking about (as a small attachment).

Thanks, though.


No problemo.
