comment How to grep standard error stream (stderr)?
Thanks. it does work, though, you mean it is working on your machine? Secondly, as you pointed out using pipe we can only redirect stdout. I am interested in some command or bash feature that will let me redirect stderr. (but not the temp file trick)

comment How to get rid of desktop environment and use a window manager only?
@Michael: At the time of posting I was confused and thought it is not possible to use Linux without some desktop env and that is why Nautilus brings desktop icons. This became the reason of posting "two" questions in one thread, although at that time they seemed closely related.

comment How to get rid of desktop environment and use a window manager only?
Thanks sepp2k. But what if some other application opens Nautilus? Like blueman-manager, an application I use to connect to my cell phone through bluetooth. Whenever I click on browse to see files on my cell phone, it open nautilus. Now how can I pass --no-desktop in this case? As I certainly have no control on blueman-manager.
