I had many files and shortcuts in my Desktop and they have disappeared. I've checked my ~/Desktop folder and it is empty, no files there. I have no idea what happened. Any help to find and recover those missing files would be welcome. I use Xubuntu 18.04. Thanks !!

  • Did you try to search them elsewhere in your $HOME file hierarchy or even under the Trash folder (/home/$USER/.local/share/Trash)? – FedonKadifeli Jun 22 at 18:10
  • Thanks for the advice. I found the contents in another place. Some mistake with the touchpad I guess. – pedroc Jun 22 at 18:40
