After upgrading from Ubuntu 18.10 to 19.04, Gnome has upgraded from 3.30.2 to 3.32.0. My handy desktop icons, links, and mounted volume icons are gone, the Desktop tweaks are gone to bring them back, and the Desktop shortcut is gone in the sidebar of Nautilus (Files). The actual files and Desktop are still there when you navigate under Home obviously, but this makes them so inconvenient to get to or use.
I found and installed the Gnome extension called Desktop Icons and that works...but not well. They're difficult to size, sort, and arrange. And they used to be clickable on top of or through my Conky stuff. Now they are below Conky and I cannot click on them. So it really renders Conky unusable for me. I have to turn off Conky to use my desktop icons. I really want the old Gnome desktop back.
I realize it's too late or extremely difficult to go back to Ubuntu 18.10 at this point. Can I stay on 19.04 and revert back to Gnome 3.30.2? If so, how?
