Okay, so what I was trying to do was modify the stylesheet.css file located in that folder so that I could move the icons a little further away than what I had set and like an idiot I entered this command ("rm -rf /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/desktop-icons@csoriano")

instead of this command:

("rm -rf /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/desktop-icons@csoriano/stylesheet.css")

So what exactly do I need to do to reinstall that folder?


You can try

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get reinstall gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons
