Running Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon 64-bit, Cinnamon version 3.2.7, Linux Kernel 4.4.0-53-generic. There are 3 monitors.
When I change current directory to Desktop and then do command ls, I see many more files and folders than is visible when I look at any of the monitors that has a view of the Desktop.
Question: Should I see the see same files independent of the method I used to access them, through the desktop on one of the monitors or using the "ls" command?
In directory ~/.config the file user-dirs.dirs has, as first non-comment line this:
And my question is the same as at Linux Mint desktop displays different files from ls command:
Why isn't my desktop showing things that are actually in my Desktop folder, and how can I fix this?
Things I tried:
Using command line, if I create a new file in my $HOME folder, I do not see it on my Desktop, and if I create it in my Desktop directory, I see in in the graphical interface.
