Title: How get desktop icons (SOLVED)
Post by: theedude on March 28, 2019, 03:02:15 pm
On other Distros/DE's I've used, there is usually a shortcut to home, trash, mounted drives, etc. on the desktop. I dont see this on mine. Maybe there is a way to enable this, but I couldn't find it.

Fire up "dconf Editor" by navigating to:-

Menu > System > dconf Editor

Then in dconf Editor, navigate to org > nemo > desktop

Then toggle ON/OFF any of:-

computer-icon-visible
home-icon-visible
network-icon-visible
trash-icon-visible
volumes-visible




Or from the command line....

Computer icon ON
Code: [Select]
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop computer-icon-visible true
Computer icon OFF
Code: [Select]
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop computer-icon-visible false

Home folder icon ON
Code: [Select]
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop home-icon-visible true
Home folder icon OFF
