This question already has an answer here:
The thing is that I decided to install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (had 17.10 before) and everything was fine, I could open desktop folders. I don't know how, but some days ago suddenly I couldn't open theses folders by double clicking on them or even right clicking and trying to open as a new window. I can open these folders with Nautilus(default file browser) and can even delete them and some more options like rename (as double clicking on them at desktop) and can also open desktop files by double clicking. The problem is just with folders on desktop. I tried to look for a solution but nothing worked at the moment so I hope someone could help me with this. I am using GNOME desktop environment.
@ArchismanPanigrahi First i did a clean install and it worked fine but i started to install some gnome extensions and suddenly dunno with which one it doesnt work anymore. The thing is i disabled all the extensions and keep not working. I am running 18.074 with ComunityTheme but it doesnt work with normal enviroment. I wish this info can be useful for u, anything u need just comment, sorry for answering late but I was kinda bussy. Thanks
@DavidFoerster Yeah, i tryed to enter as guest user and the problem continues, i think it could be a nautilus problem maybe but was looking for info and tryed to reinstall, nothing worked at the moment. Its not a really serious problem but would like to know why this is happening, i just found one guy in Ubuntu Reddit who has exactly the same problem and no solution, i will try to solve this again because i was kinda bussy and didnt got time to continue. Anywway thx for your help and sorry for the late answer.
EDIT 1: Still no solution found, formatting would solve this but dont want to do this.
EDIT 2: Tryed to remove nautilus and use Nemo as main file browser and have the same problem so i dont think its a nautilus problem.
EDIT 3: I found this article and not sure if could be the answer for my question. If anyone knows comment, thanks. https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/01/gnome-desktop-icons-removed-3-28
