I keep on having to create a new folder called "Desktop" in my home directory and then I keep on having to edit the file
/home/<my user>/.config/user-dirs.dirs to redirect whatever program is using this file so that my home folder contents aren't displayed on the desktop.
I do not want to see my home folder contents on the desktop ever again, so I have done the following:
I have created a folder called "Desktop" and given it read only access permissions
I have created a folder called "Desktop" and given it read only access permissions and changed the owner to root
I have created a folder "Desktop" with a very rude name that reflects my frustration with this very simple problem and given it read only access permissions
And still after about 2 reboots the folder is deleted and the file is re-edited.
Can some one tell me how to kill the program that must be the spawn of Satan that keeps on deleting my Desktop folder? I suspect that not only is it in league with Satan but that it is also in league with root because no other user can do this.
