Goodness me. So much stuff to do just to see the icons on the desktop when I log on? Oh, come on, its not like its some kind of an Ubuntu error or bug or something. You can simply click the "Places" on top and you get em all. Why bother about desktop icons. Of course if its your personal preference, its perfectly rational.

Of course if its your personal preference, its perfectly rational.You don't have to do ALL the stuff listed there. If you read it carefully, you will probably need to follow just a few commands. But the information is all there for you to tweak things if you so wished.

In anycase, isn't it fun to tweak things even if you don't really need it ?

It's definitely fun to tweak things even if I don't really need it; as long as I don't screw up something big. "There you go start talking like a Windows user" you say, right? Well, I am a Ubuntu newbie.... :-)
