XFCE: How to disable computer... icon on desktop? [Solved]

Post by svantoviit » Tue Sep 27, 2011 9:48

After the last update (weekly) computer, home and trash icons popped up on the desktop again, although they are disabled in xfce desktop settings.
How to get rid of them?

Remove like the old one. I think when you take update you allow to rewrite some configuration files, so they pop up like in default configuration files. If you need some additional help, it will be wise to read XFCE forums. It's my sugesstion, not opinion.

Realized what the problem was...
What I considered to be a background change was a running full screen instance of nautilus.
Killed nautilus and xfce desktop is OK now.
Anyway strange, Thev00d00, what do you think?

It isnt on the disk by default...

You will need to be careful to only run nautilus with --no-desktop?

Actually I don't use nautilus, it was installed as a dependency of something else.
After some artwork-related updates it popped up by itself...

Running nautilus with --no-desktop option works (for those who wish to use it) on XFCE.
