I think at some point I might have accidentally moved the
Desktop folder onto my
Pictures folder, and when I noticed I reverted it. But ever since then, the icons shown in my graphical desktop are of the files and folders in
I am on Ubuntu 17.10 with gnome. Tried turning off the option
Show Desktop Icons in
Tweak Tools and then turning it back on, but it didn't do anything.
My theory is that there was a
symlink of some sort that changed, or was deleted, when the
Desktop folder wasn't where it was supposed to be. But I don't know where to look to be able to fix it.
