Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I made a folder names "Stamps" on my desktop a while ago for my site. I deleted it because I have no use for it anymore. Now every time I restart or shut off my computer, the file keeps coming up on my desktop even though I deleted it... -_-

Can anyone help please?

codymoores@codymoores-*****:~$ ls -l ~/Desktop

Manually made it –  cody Moores Mar 17 '13 at 19:13
Does the tag Ubuntu One mean that you have your desktop on Ubuntu One? If yes, I guess the answer will be easy. –  AliNa Mar 17 '13 at 22:05
I don't see any folder there at all, please reboot and show us the output of ls -l ~/Desktop again. –  guntbert Mar 18 '13 at 9:28
