can't change desktop icons?

Postby nvrBungeeJumped on Tue Mar 19, 2013 11:17 am

I'm having a bit of trouble with Cinnamon. When I go into cinnamon settings > desktop and try change what is on the desktop, computer home and trash, the changes don't take effect. No matter what I turn on or off it never updates and all I have on my desktop is computer and home.

Any clues?

*edit, I am using nvidia drivers.


found the solution here
nautilus and nemo are both autostarted at login (sometimes they KO each [other]).
You don't need to remove nautilus, all you need is to stop it autostarting at log in... delete the startup file

Code: Select all
sudo rm /etc/xdg/autostart/nautilus-autostart.desktop
