How can I make the desktop show icons again under 64bit Debian 9.0 Cinnamon?
I switched from the nemo file-manager to the nautilus one and now my desktop doesn't show any icons/folders and I can't right-click it either.
I already tried the gnome-tweak-tool which only has an option "Desktop"->"Icons on desktop" which I set to "On" and which didn't help. I also ran
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true and tried replacing "nemo" with "nautilus" in /usr/share/applications/x-cinnamon-mimeapps.list.
Also I'd like to know why desktop icons are apparently hidden by default when switching file-manager? Isn't that severely counterintuitive. Who wants the desktop to only display the wallpaper but no files on it? And is that just the case with nautilus?
Edit: I now switched from Cinnamon to KDE and from Nautilus to Dolphin: both are way better!
