My Cinnamon LM 13 has always been erratic with desktop icons, so I disabled them for start up,
Cinnamon Settings > Desktop
now things only appear there if I place them manually, otherwise Cinnamon is very good and stable, IMHO.
Incidentally I am about to move from Cinnamon to KDE myself, how do you find KDE as a regular user?

For whatever reason it wasn't there until I added it, and since nemo handles the Cinnamon desktop, no nemo = no icons.
