When I want to change the icon from a shortcut or folder on Desktop the change doesn't effect/apply on Desktop. When I navigate to $HOME/Desktop ($HOME/Schreibtisch in my way) the icon change effects but not on the Desktop itself.

OS version: 20.04 LTS

gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons is installed.

  • I know that's why I installed gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons.

    I just tested this myself. New icons on folders appear only if the folder is not on the Desktop proper. They do appear if the folder is anywhere else. It's because the gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons is a work-in-progress, and doesn't support ALL desktop icons yet.
