comment I would like to put one single icon in the Desktop that actually opens the Desktop. Any ideas?
@terdon Because there are virtual icons that I want to keep. And some of them are created gnome in response to certain events. An example is plugged in USB pens.

@slybloty Done. Is this more clear?

@terdon Exactly. But without the icons blocking the view to that background.

Just to give an update, it runs fine from the Alt+F2 command window in gnome 3.4 from debian.

comment In debian based systems, how do we purge configuration files of packages that have already been uninstalled?
@FaheemMitha Changed the title according to your suggestions. But I think the autoremove only would make things confusing if I didn't write anything else. But the sentence "I would like to do the equivalent of adding the --purge flag to the following command" makes things clear.

Usually, I keep the important configurations in my own home folder. This means the --purge flag does not do anything problematic to me. And it actually helps me not having any problems later on. Is there any good reason you say I shouldn't use --purge that I'm missing?
