Desktop is Gray w/no icons
« on: March 15, 2019, 10:25:11 pm »
Booted up my machine and my desktop wallpaper and icons are gone. I can't right click on the desktop either. Tried restarting and the problem persists.

Any help is much appreciated.

What happens if you hit Ctrl+Alt+T, and when a terminal opens run:
Code: [Select]
nemo-desktop?
