I have been using Gnome Ubuntu 13.04. I updated to Gnome 3.8 and all is well. Not happy with Nautilus 3.6 in Unity or Gnome Ubuntu I try PCmanFM. My system begins to reboot at will, although PCmanFM is fast. I noticed that although Desktop icons are enabled in Gnome-tweak-tool, there are no desktop icons.
I try Thunar File Manager. Very fast like PcmanFM but still no Desktop icons. How do I fix this?
