I am running 9.2 with gnome-classic.desktop. Every time I log in, my user’s home folders and trash are shown as desktop icons. How do I prevent showing user homedir folder, trash, subdirs, files this for all users on this host?
donf’s org/gnome/desktop/background/show-desktop-icons is already set to FALSE. Why are the user folders still appearing on the desktop? I installed gnome-tweaks, but the extensions tab is missing. gnome-extensions appears to be cli-only. running gnome-extensions prefs email@example.com pops a window, but unchecking the boxes STILL DOES NOT remove all the icons (the homedir subfolder icons and files are still there). And it only works per-user.
I notice that the icons randomly disappear- like when opening an app and closing it- icons on desktop gone all of a sudden. run dconf and they come back - or logout/login as same user- they come back. Why?
How should I properly prevent 9.2 gnome-classic.desktop GUI from displaying any and all user’s homedir icons (folders, trash and files)? Thank you.
list of GUIs installed:
gnome-classic.desktop (only one in /usr/share/xsessions; rest moved to a subfolder i created)
mate.desktop (added post-OS install)
xfce.desktop (added post-OS install)
disabling show-home, show-trash DOES NOT remove the desktop icons for non-hidden homedir subfolders homedir non-hidden files. Why?
show-mount FAILS to show icons for mounted NFS shares. Why?
gnome-extensions disable firstname.lastname@example.org
works to remove icons
BUT FOR ONLY 1 USER
AND REALLY DOESNT WORK- because it also removes the right click desktop for terminal
What is the story here? Is there some conflict?
