View Full Version : [lubuntu] desktop icons disappear - pcmanfm crashes

December 3rd, 2011, 07:03 AM
I have two problems with lubuntu:

1) sometimes desktop icons disappear, while everything else apparently continue to work fine. I found this:

http://wiki.lxde.org/en/LXDE:Questions#Right_click_on_the_desktop_renders_ a_weird_menu_.28aka_where_did_my_desktop_icons_go. 3F.29

and I tried changing that option but nothing happens;

2) pcmanfm sometimes crashes opening certain folders. This appears to be random. With a certain folder sometimes it crashes, sometimes opens it.

Thanks for your help

These problems are getting worse. Is there a way to use another program (e.g. nautilus, thunar) as default file manager and desktop manager?

just install nautilus or thunar.
