Today’s tutorial will be a quicky. I was thinking earlier about how the default gnome menu doesn’t include any icons. For those of you that recently came from the wonderful world of windows you might prefer to have quick access to “My Computer”, “My Documents” and “Trash” right there on the desktop. This tutorial will outline how to have those icons included (or removed).
- Hit ALT-F2 and type: gconf-editor
- Select “Apps” > “Nautilus” > “Desktop”
- check/uncheck the boxes for computer_icon_visible, documents_icon_visible, or trash_icon_visible.
You should now see “My Computer” “My Documents” and “Trash” icons included on your desktop. Simply reverse these steps to remove any of the items.
