Very easy question, but it's got me. There are three icons on my desktop; Trash, Home, File System. I don't want them there, how can I get rid of them? I have tried to delete many ways but I'm lost. ls -lash doesn't show any files in ~/Desktop/ either.
Cheers in advance, I am sure this one is quick.
Start Applications -> Settings -> Settings Manager -> Desktop -> Menu and disable this function - http://www.xfce.org/documentation/4.2/manuals/xfdesktop
You also can start this program via Terminal: xfce-setting-show backdrop
Go to "Desktop Preferences", there, in the tab "Desktop Icons" choose "None". That's all.
Cheers guys, both ways go to the same place. Under the 'behaviour' tab on mine. Job done ;-)
You can also configure which of them you want to show or hide:
