I'm using xubuntu 18.04 which use Xfce. For some reason after a while of using the system, I can't click desktop icons (left/right/double clicks). Still system is working and I'm able to use menu, panels, switch windows, open new programs but not the icons on the desktop.

How to fix this issue?

  • running xfwm4 --replace makes icons disappear! – Rami Sedhom Aug 13 at 14:57
  • the only way is to force kill (-9) xfdesktop and start it again – Rami Sedhom Aug 13 at 17:12
