    Question Desktop Icons Moving Plus...

    Hi all,
    Has anyone noticed that on Xubuntu 11.10 that the desktop icons move ALL AROUND. Everytime I log in I find my icons re-arranged with no specific pattern. Home will not stay on top left for example. Is there a way to make them stationary? It bugs the heck out of me.

    Also I have noticed that I cannot 'lasso' more than one desktop icon at a time and move them. In other words, If I box off two or more icons and try to move them (to another location or folder) in unison only one will move. The rest will not move. Irratating

    Does your screen resolution get changed at some point?

    Saving the layout file located in
    Code:
    ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/
    before logout and restoring it afterwards might be a solution.

    Yeah, the XFCE desktop manager is pretty limited. Moving more than 1 desktop icon at the same time simply does not work.
