Nautilus has taken over your desktop. Run these two commands in a terminal, reboot, and you should be good to go...
gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false &
gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/background/draw_background false &
lizardking@misterio:~$ gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false &  2573 lizardking@misterio:~$ gconftool-2 -s -t bool /desktop/gnome/background/draw_background false &  2574  Done gconftool-2 -s -t bool /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop false lizardking@misterio:~$
Nautilus is very Gnome dependent. It tends to be problematic on anything but a Gnome DE. If you don't want to run Gnome I'd suggest you stay away from Nautilus.
Perhaps if you explained your "personal reasons" we could help you adjust to another more WM friendly file manager.
There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.
^ what he said. nautilus is usually unnecessary...
Be eggsalad to each other.
there are several reasons why i use nautilus,
beside, i already solved the problem.
I had to use the commands of nnh, and just had to leave out the '&' at the end.
I'll mark the thread as solved.
