In Nautilus (Files) your can change the default view via Edit -> Preferences -> Views tab - Icon Views Default and checking Text beside icons. Unfortunately, even with Have file manager manage the desktop set via gnome-tweak-tool (Advanced Settings) this doesn't change the desktop icons view, only for folder views within Nautilus.

I think this person is looking for a way to have it on the side for the desktop, not for the file browser like nautilus. –  ruffEdgz May 9 '12 at 17:17
