Support for desktop icons in 19.04


Hello! Is this topic still being discussed or solved? the LXQt people seem to think they’ve solved icons on the desktop/split menus? Unless I read this wrong…



Yep - still relevant.

LXQt is a QT based solution - I’ve looked at this and not really portable to Budgie Desktop. Dependencies - look/feel etc are out of place.

For 19.04 either DesktopFolder or Nemo Desktop will be our solution. We’ll make a decision for 19.04 in a couple of weeks time.

We’ll reassess any decision for 19.10 anyway since that solution will be the basis for 20.04 LTS.
