This question already has an answer here:
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS using the Gnome Classic desktop. Under CompizConfig I'm running the Desktop Cube and Wallpaper settings to have a cube with 4 different wallpapers. When using CompizConfig Wallpaper, there are no desktop icons. I can turn them back on via Ubuntu Tweak, but that reverts my wallpaper back to the default on all 4 viewports. Is there a way to have the desktop icons show up while using CompizConfig Wallpaper, or do I just have to choose between having one or the other?
