    I don't think that it is possible to do that and keep your icons with gnome (yet). Though if I remember correctly, KDE might be able to.

    e17 can do this, and I think I heard about KDE being able to as well as the previous poster, don't know for sure though.

    you can use the folderview screenlet to display your desktop icons. its not a perfect replacement, but it might be worth a try.

    The funny thing is, I remember when I used Linux around 2003, both Gnome and KDE had this feature, and now neither of them do - at least by default :/.
