I want to display the desktop icons without the text. I only have the Home and Trash icons on the desktop. Any sugestions?
As of at least 14.04 the gconf schema of
apps > nautilus > preferences no longer exists. The new, recommended, method is to use dconf to change the font size to 0.
The key is located under
org.gnome.nautilus.desktop and called
font. You can edit it with dconf editor (in the
dconf-editor packages). Or by using
gsettings from the CLI:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font "Ubuntu 0"
To revert the changes make the key empty, either from the dconf-editor gui or with gsettings from the CLI:
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font ""
The default value appears to be
Ubuntu 11, even though the key is blank.
