    Cant right click in unity desktop after installing gnome 3 in ubuntu 13.04

    Hi,
    I installed gnome 3.8 in ubuntu 13.04 yesterday. I also had installed gnome-fallback. I replaced lightdm with gdm. At that time the network icon was visible only in gnome and right click on desktop was working only in gnome.both were not visible/working in gnome-fallback and unity. I thought it was some gdm problem and i started with lightdm now. I am able to see the network icon in all three still the right click in desktop(where you change backgrouds and stuffs) works only in gnome not in unity and gnome-fallback. Please help thanks.

    Edit: Also my files are not visible in desktop but are visible in nautilus /home/Desktop

    Install gnome-tweak tool and ensure "have file manager manage the desktop" option is set.

    I tried that.. but if I let file manager handle my desktop the desktop doesn't work properly.. it gets struck or the screen does clear our.. example if I had opened any file or folder from desktop even after minimizing or closing that file or folder images doesn't clear.

    Can you upload a screen shot using manage attachments . Gnome 3.8 is still use at your own risk and comes with a new version of the file manager when installed.
