I install cinnamon desktop environment in Ubuntu. Now i face a problem that some icons and file icons freezes as they are image files in the desktop. I am unable to move them or remove these icons from my desktop.

Icon in cinnamon desktop

Please help to resolve this problem.

*This problem occurs only in cinnamon desktop environment.


hey there i didn't use cinnamon till now but commonly those problems will be solved by:

  1. restarting your machine. (because of invalid cache)
  2. changing the icon theme in settings. (changing in icon properties)
  • Is there any stable solution for this problem because this problem occurs again and again? – Puneet Dixit May 26 '16 at 19:54
