Appearance

Desktop Icons

Beginning in versions 3.29 the desktop icons functionality was removed and disabled by GNOME. If you wish to restore the desktop icons you have a few options:

  • Replace nautilus with another file manager that supports desktop icons, such as nemo.
  • Replace nautilus with its legacy version, nautilus-legacy.
    • Afterwards to enable desktop icons use gnome-tweaks or dconf-editor ( org.gnome.desktop.background > show-desktop-icons > TRUE )

To manually control which system icons appear on the desktop use dconf-editor to navigate to org.gnome.nautilus.desktop then toggle <NAME>-icon-visible to TRUE or FALSE.
