Ok! I have changed it to that command now. It doesn't seem to be working.

Can you pastebin the contents of
Code: [Select]
pluma /etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint/desktop.conf
and
Code: [Select]
pluma ~/.config/lxsession/Peppermint/desktop.conf

Run:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/lxsession/Peppermint/desktop.conf pluma ~/.config/lxsession/desktop.conf.broken
then log off/on.

Any difference ?

I'm not expecting this to work, but it should set the lxsession back to defaults .. to at least rule that out..

This command is returning this output:
Code: [Select]
mv: target '/home/abhay/.config/lxsession/desktop.conf.broken' is not a directory

But I moved the "desktop.conf" file to its parent directory and renamed it manually. It changed whole theme and icons to its default peppermint settings but desktop still not responsive.

Okay not that then .. you can move it back again if you want.



Something else is obviously still grabbing control of the desktop away from nemo.

Can you do this again, after a reboot.
Code: [Select]
ps aux >> ~/ps-aux-output.txt
you'll then find a file called ps-aux-output.txt in your home folder.

Can you upload its contents to a pastebin
https://pastebin.com/
and post a link back here.

Can you also post the output from:
Code: [Select]
gsettings get org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons

Thank you Sir for your help. Although, After a lot of efforts I decided to reinstall my distro and it is now working as expected. :)
