Hello guys. I’m having a problem because I use Ubuntu Budgie and it uses nemo as the file manager. But, I do not know where I saw that there was a button somewhere that disabled the desktop, now I can no longer see the icons on the desktop. Has a button in dconf that enables the buttons but are the folders and files in my / home / user folder
Not sure what you did and where, but:
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons true
should fix it.
this command show the /home/user folder, I just want he show the /home/neto/workspace
That will switch on the desktop icons - i.e. everything in the Desktop home-folder - or the equivalent translation of Desktop
If you have changed your Desktop folder to “~/workspace” then I’m guessing you have changed the XDG_DESKTOP_DIR value in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs
For me its
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" so I expect you want
my file /.config / user-dirs.dirs it’s normal according to the name of the common folders. But the icons on desktop it’s of the /home/user instead follow the folder /home/user/workspace
Please copy paste the contents of the file here
This file is written by xdg-user-dirs-update
If you want to change or add directories, just edit the line you’re
interested in. All local changes will be retained on the next run.
Format is XDG_xxx_DIR="$HOME/yyy", where yyy is a shell-escaped
homedir-relative path, or XDG_xxx_DIR="/yyy", where /yyy is an
absolute path. No other format is supported.
XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Área de Trabalho"
Your desktop folder is $HOME/Área de Trabalho
It isn’t $HOME/workspace
If you have deleted the folder $HOME/Área de Trabalho then the desktop will default to $HOME
and how I fix this ? because my $HOME/Área de Trabalho is not deleted
Have anyone help me ?
Please create another account and log in - test that all is ok with desktop icons. Need to confirm that your current system is still working correctly - and that this is limited to your current account
in the discourse of ubuntu budgie ?
Another user account on your desktop/laptop install of ubuntu budgie
oh ok, but I have already done this and when I logged on new user, he criated the user with some fails, some things are missing. But I will try again
Yeah, the problem of the icons of desktop it’s in my current account, somethings failed in the login, but I think that’s can be fixed
Try resetting nemo settings:
dconf reset -f /org/cinnamon/ gsettings reset-recursively org.nemo
Then logout and login
thank you so much, It took a while to get this resolved, but with your help I was able to
