Cinnamon 19.1, 19.2 desktop system icons move on their own

Post by danost » Fri Aug 30, 2019 6:14 am

In both Cinnamon 19.1 and now in 19.2 also, system icons on desktop move around the desktop on their own.
This happens with Trash, Home, Computer icons. They move to wherever and into the same desktop place, underneath or on top of other desktop icons.
If I place these icons not near other icons, they don't move, see image attached

I'm experiencing the same problem and some of my clients that I have installed Cinnamon 19.1 on have the same problem. Very annoying. I hope someone has a solution.

I'm glad its not only me that has this problem. How do we get this elevated to the level where someone at LinuxMint who can fix this gets involved, any ideas?
