Tim, you nailed it. It was the question 394610, the first link you cited. Thanks very much. Solved. Wish I could award you points.

comment Add Folder Name on Desktop
I am using the default theme - Ambience. I can't think of anything custom that I added that would affect this behavior. I don't have any bizarre fonts, either. So, you're saying that you see the folder icons with labels?

Ok, so all you people who have commented, and to the gentleman who downvoted the question - have you tried creating a folder under "Desktop", and does the folder icon show on the Desktop WITH a label?

Jacob, they do have names. I can view the names in Nautilus, and via a bash terminal. I just don't see the folder names on the Desktop. When you create a folder on your Desktop, is it labeled?

Added a screenshot of my Ubuntu Desktop, showing two folders with no labels, so I don't know which folder is which.

I got that, but when I create a folder on my desktop, there is a folder icon, but no label. I want the folder name as part of the label. Just having a bunch of unlabeled folder icons on my Desktop, not knowing which is which, is not very useful.

comment Should Ubuntu users be concerned about “Operation Windigo”?
Now I see: To prevent infection of systems, ESET suggested disabling root login through SSH along with passwords. SSH Agent Forwarding instead of copying over private keys to servers was also recommended, as was two-factor authentication.
