How to group/arrange the icons on the Desktop by their name/type ?
Thanks

Edit: sorry I just figured it out clean up by name by right click. But how to clean them up by type?

AFAIK this is hardcoded into nautilus and is not user-configurable. If I'm wrong, then someone please enlighten me.

Oh, that means it is difficult to change unless give up gnome and get kde?

If it's an absolute deal-breaker for you, then yes, it would require you switching to another desktop environment or wait for the feature to be implimented (if ever).
