Fedora :: Icons Not Showing On Desktop

Recently i have upgraded from Fedora 14 to 15 formating the system partition and reinstalling. Nearly evrithing was flawless, but when i copied my old home directory the images of some of the launchers i have on the desktop are invisible.I use kde 4 with the activity show folder running pointing to the desktop folder. The icons missing are windows programs installed with wine. I copied the icons from one installation to another. I also tried to manually set the icon copying it to a different location and modifying de .desktop.

Ubuntu :: File Associations And Icons Not Showing On Desktop?
For the past few days my file associations have gone for a toss. For example : an icon on the desktop to open eclipse says eclipse.desktop and doesn't show the eclipse image when i right click a .bz2 file it doesn't show the extract here option for text files, a small bit of the text is showing outside the icon where it usually shows inside The same problems are present in nautilus as well as the desktop.

Need some quick help to reset these to the default.

Have attached a screenshot to show the issue.

OpenSUSE :: Folder View Appl. Showing Desktop Folder - How To Add Icons
I have the Folder View applet on the Desktop viewing the Desktop Folder "~/Desktop"

Some shortcuts are outdated because of new installation of opensuse 11.2...

How can I add icons there in?

I can add icons to the Desktop and Taskbar but no in this Folder View on the Desktop (BTW: Is this Panel called "Folder View applet"?)

If I try to move a icon from Desktop to this Panel it is not moved in this panel it is placed behind this Panel...

And how can I get more than one of this panels for example one displays the Desktop folder other the home dir ...

Fedora :: Icons Are Not Showing Up Correctly In Various Places?
I have a strange problem, icons are not showing up correctly in various places, attaching some screens to better show the problem.

Anything I open that has a notification icon, just appears exactly the same, as you can see in one of the screens even hovering over certain things brings up that same icon...

Edit: After some searching I see it's an nvidia bug...

Fedora :: No Icons Displayed On The Desktop?
There is a weird thing happening with my FC14 installation. When I log in, I have no icons displayed on the desktop, although I may (and I do) really have them there. One other thing: There is also no "right click" on the desktop.This is solved by opening a folder (which means launching nautilus?), but that's awful and I would like to solve it. ;-)Some information on the system:

[skorzen@g62 ~]$ uname -r

Fedora :: Removing Icons From The Desktop?
I hate desktop icons and shortcuts. I don't ever need them, and they look wasteful and cluttery sitting there unused. Since everything is accessible from the menus, I would like to not have any icons on my desktop in Fedora 11. I have been playing around with the settings for days and can't find a way to make them disappear.

Fedora :: Conky Xfce Desktop Icons
conky draws the root background for sudo transparency, not the desktop image, so solve by using real transparency, but this means any desktop icon blinks or just vanishes, what to do,looked around for a while. but no further along, anyone else had this problem, anyone else solved this problem?

Fedora :: Failed To Display Icons In Desktop Menu Bar
I am using Fedora 15 with Gnome 3. I installed ati driver properly and everything looks great except the icons in the menu bar.

However, when the cursor hovers over the icons, they become normal. This is a problem with ati driver and Gnome-shell.

Fedora :: Desktop Wallpaper And Icons Become Strecthed Unusable
I already posted on the compiz community forums but I figure more eyes are better than less. I hope the "software" forum is the right place to post, I don't believe I'm having any hardware issues.What I'm seeing is strange desktop corruption/stretching when compiz starts, almost as if compiz thinks my desktop is about four time wider (horizontal) than it really is and this makes nautilus go a bit crazy. All other compiz functionality seems fine. Before compiz starts (with metacity or openbox), the desktop (nautilus) appears normal. I've tried both settings for show_desktop in gconf and they both result in the same (bad) effect. If I use a gradient as my background instead of an image, I see that the gradient is also wrong in the same way (wider than it should be).

Attached are two screen shots: streched-small.jpeg is my desktop with compiz and normal-small.jpeg is the same desktop after running "metacity --replace".I have a dual head setup with an ATI X18000 running two identical monitors, both at 1280x1024. This problem does NOT happen if I disable one of the display or clone them nor does it happen if I place one monitor on top of the other. The problem only occurs in dual head mode and only if the monitors are logically positioned side by side, horizontally.I don't think it factors in but it's worth mentioning I'm doing this with an LTSP 5 thin client configuration. My thin client just happens to be a PC with an X1800 at the moment.

Fedora :: PCManFM Updated - LXDE Desktop Icons Now Missing
Running Fedora 13, LXDE spin. Today, the pcmanfm package updated to version 0.9.7 during a software update. After a reboot, I no longer have desktop icons and I'm seeing the default Fedora wallpaper. Also, if I right-click on the desktop, I get a standard openbox menu instead of the LXDE one.

I would like to get my old desktop back.

Fedora Installation :: Fc5 To Fc10 Upgrade - All Desktop Icons Have Disappeared
I tried doing an upgrade straight from fc5 to fc10. The upgrade seemed to go all right but once it was completed I've noticed some issues. My main issues are these:

1. After the upgrade all my desktop icons have disappeared and I'm not sure how to recover them. (this applies to all user account on a home machine)

2. When I click the right mouse button on the desktop I get no context menu but I do get the menu when I right click on my top or bottom menu bars.

3. When I try to launch any applications, games, etc., I see the icon show up in the bottom menu bar for a few seconds but then it disappears and the application never launches.

Those are the primary problems I'm encountering right now. I know the files in the home directories are still there (I did CTRL-ALT-F2 into a terminal and logged in as root. Normally I would've done CTRL-ALT-F1 but when I did I saw acpid messages and no prompt.) I've looked through the forums here but nothing I came across quite seemed to fit my needs.

Fedora :: F13 | XFCE | Internal Drives Not Showing On Desktop?
Running:Fedora 13kernel xfce 4.6.2Problem: I have a 1TB drive (SATA) with 2 partitions. The partitions/volumes don't show on the desktop.The volume names are:MASSIVEBACKUP.

Facts:1. When I login using GNOME, both volumes (MASSIVE & BACKUP) are listed on my desktop2. My /etc/fstab has long since been edited to reflect these drives3. Using XFCE: Although the volumes don't show on the desktop, they are indeed mounted. I can see them when performing a "df -h" as well as when opening "File System" and drilling to /media - they are both there. I can also access the contents of both volumes within "File System" (using Thunar).4. Using XFCE: I can access both volumes via command line5. Using XFCE: External drives are not affected. I have one external USB drive that shows and when I plug my Android phone, it too shows on the desktop.

After some exploring, I installed the following:Oct 01 22:17:29 Installed: xfce4-mount-plugin-0.5.5-4.fc12.i686I then added "Mount Devices" to my panel, you've probably figured out - they're already mounted.

Here is my /etc/fstab:
# /etc/fstab

Fedora :: Desktop Icons Invisible And File Browser Doesn't Work?
I installed Fedora 12 yesterday. After installation, I added some packages like gstreamer*, amarok, vlc etc.
Once I rebooted, all desktop icons became invisible and I'm unable to open file browser and browse files/folders.
When I log out, I get this message saying "File Manager not responding!"

I initially thought I messed up with settings, and created a new account. Still no use.

BTW, I use Gnome Desktop Environment.

I went further and installed Fedora 12 again. And did the same package installation. And after reboot, no desktop items is visible and can't browse files/folders using file browser (nautilus).

Fedora Installation :: Exchanging Hard Drive Between Computers - No Icons On Desktop And No Panels
I recently upgraded my computer and tried using same hard-drive in new one. Fedora 11 booted and allowed me to log-in. But system is un-usable as there are no Icons on desktop and no panels. While I know that initial installation is based on hardware profile of previous computer, is there any work-around to make it work without having to install fresh. Also, If I choose option "replace previous Linus version" from LiveCD, will that preserve my personal data and settings?
