View Full Version : [gnome] How to have desktop display contents of HOME directory?
May 24th, 2010, 11:20 PM
Hi, I am just coming to GNOME from KDE where I used the folder view desktop widget to display the contents of ~ directory (/home/<user>) rather than the "Desktop" directory itself, as that's where all the stuff I wanted to access from the desktop was. Is there any way I can do this in GNOME with the actual desktop (as opposed to a widget)?

look in gconf-editor, i think i saw a setting for that, try using the search in there.

Thanks guys :D I actually did it by deleting my Desktop folder but I guess the gconf way is the safer way.
