On my Nautilus in Ubuntu 17.10, Desktop icon/link on side bar disappeared. How could I restore it?

I've tried to edit user-dirs.dirs file without any success. The strange thing is the difference between nautilus side bar and dialog "open file" from application (e.g. Chrome)

  • If I'm not mistaken it's a Wayland-only issue. If you switch to an Xorg session "Desktop" should be there. – pomsky Dec 4 '17 at 10:03
  • I confirm that I have the issue with wayland – Natim Jan 24 '18 at 10:24
  • This workaround may be a temporary fix: Visit Desktop and bookmark it. – turbulence Jul 24 at 15:21
