Persistent dead icons on the desktop

Postby roger64 » Thu Apr 12, 2012 5:14 am

Hi

I just installed LMDE 64 with Cinnamon. After copying files from Lisa to LMDE, I managed by having three dead icons on my desktop: Computer, Home and one folder. I still have also Computer and Home icons working.

I reinstalled Cinnamon (which btw installs also Gnome Shell and Gnome fallback), suppressed the folder Cinnamon in my Home directory to no avail. I do not know how to get rid of these three dead icons. They do not appear as files (ls -l sees nothing).They are just here, mute, unmovable and vaguely threatening... :D

Any idea welcome.

Did you try
cinnamon-settings
My Linux history: Ubuntu 10.04 - 10.10 - LMDE 201109 - UP4 My sources.list/preferences

Computers is not science. And it's not magic - it's something in between.

Now way. I finally had to throw out the wallpaper... Curious, he was not even accepting a brand new version of the wallpaper. Maybe he did not like the colours... Solved this way.
