• Mate 1.8 desktop problems


    Right clicking the desktop does nothing. “Add this launcher to the desktop” does nothing. The desktop is blank. No Computer, Home, Network, or Trash icons. The Control Center Appearance works fine, but nothing to select the desktop icons. “Add this launcher to the panel” works fine. What am I missing?

  • Caja is the one who should draw your desktop icons.

    Try running caja in a terminal and post here the results…

    Are you able to navigate through your folders?

    To make Caja show desktop icons:

    dconf write /org/mate/desktop/background/show-desktop-icons true
    

    But I’m afraid this is not your problem.
