I am running Linux Mint with "Gnome Classic", I guess it's Gnome 2. I am currently using 3 workspaces, and I have nautilus handling my desktop.
The problem is that my desktop is overloaded with files. And I prefer not having to store them in directories, as that would make one more window to open before accessing the file, I already have too many open.
Can I change the "Desktop" directory for each workspace? Or maybe extend the desktop on the 3 workspaces, so that I can move each icon on the workspace I need?
Do I have to change desktop managers? Or let another file browser than nautilus do the job (how would I do that?) ?
Thanks. (and btw I'm new to using linux, if there's a better approach, please do say so)
EDIT: This is what
env | grep XDG gave me (nothing about a desktop):
jad@jad-PC ~ $ env | grep XDG XDG_SESSION_COOKIE=95dcb1ee36841dd22e3633040000000d-1337336042.360588-45732386 XDG_SESSION_PATH=/org/freedesktop/DisplayManager/Session0 XDG_SEAT_PATH=/org/freedesktop/DisplayManager/Seat0 XDG_CONFIG_DIRS=/etc/xdg/xdg-gnome-classic:/etc/xdg XDG_DATA_DIRS=/usr/share/gnome-classic:/usr/share/gnome:/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/ XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=GNOME
I also tried
env | grep Desktop, which gave me nothing.
