I always had my
Desktop folder empty, and so I deleted it. After restart, nautilus decided that it should use my home folder as a base, and now my desktop is cluttered with files from my home folder.
I tried recreating
Desktop folder, nothing changed.
I tired setting
apps/nautilus/preferences/desktop_is_home_dir key to true or false in gconf-editor, but nothing changed.
Also, I tried setting
apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop key to false, it did hide all the icons, but also screws some visual effects.
Is there some way to convince nautilus back to using
~/Desktop folder as a base folder for desktop?
