I installed 12.04lts and then mate 1.6.0 as my desktop environment.
When Mate desktop appears first time there are three icons on desktop I can live without. EG home, computer and trash.
I tried using the "Configuration Editor" to remove them but the problem is the directory /apps/caja/desktop/ doesn't appear to exist. In this case there is no Caja/desktop.....
If anyone has the answer that would be great!
I'd like to ask not to receive comments regarding sticking with unity and hijacking this thread onto another subject matter.
