Option in 'Desktop Settings' for auto-arrange icons on desktop with Nemo


When I’m creating new files, they are not auto-arrange on desktop. I fixed with this config:

gsettings set org.nemo.desktop use-desktop-grid true

It would be nice to have that option as checkbox in the Budgie Desktop Settings.

actually - it would make more sense as a right click option from the desktop.

This is something that needs exploring and implementing - https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie-desktop-environment/issues/183


Agree and I could be mistaken but I believe this is something that Nautilus did as well?

Its something nemo doesn’t provide out of the box - so we’ll have to improvise here. Needs looking at (see the link above).
