Hello, I want to fix my icons (starter) on the desktop. Especially the fact that the removable device icons will pop up where they want (after mounting) makes me a little bit grazy. Is there somebody who knows a solution? Thank you very much!
Don't know if this helps, but on my Debian xfce4 desktop the icons are controlled by configuration files in ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/
One file, xfdesktoprc, lists the icons as follows:
I did not want the removables on the screen, so I edited the reading to "false". Also on my system the file did not exist, so I had to create it.
Another file, icons.screen0.rc, places the icons on the screen according to a matrix numbered with 0,0 as top row, left column, 1,1 as second row, second column, and so on. Just change the numbers under the listed items to get the place that you want.
