I use the command gnome-session to start GNOME services while I'm using Awesome WM.

The problem with this, though, is that it shortly after it has nautilus draw the desktop wallpaper, it adds a Nautilus menu bar to this, drawn under the Awesome WM WiBox. Aesthetically, this is problematic, since it draws an extra few lines of beige where there shouldn't be any, but it also causes functional problems, too: sometimes what I type gets interpreted as a nautilus file search, and a little box appears in the lower right corner of the screen.

I tried using the command gnome-settings-daemon instead, but with that, nautilus doesn't draw the wallpaper at all at first, and it only appears after I've gone through a suspend and resume.

Update to the latest version of Nautilus, I think this was fixed in 3.2.1-0ubuntu2. –  Anonymous Nov 2 '11 at 18:40
