As a result of some misconfiguration, I had to redo a number of things in my Kubuntu 14.04 system. I've pretty much fixed everything, but now I have a new problem: the icons visible on my desktop are the contents of my home directory, not the contents of ~/Desktop. How can I fix this?


Edit your ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs file and change the value of XDG_DESKTOP_DIR

e.g. XDG_DESKTOP_DIR ="$HOME/Desktop"
