View Full Version : [ubuntu] Icon screen area

September 11th, 2008, 05:49 PM
Is it possible, and if so how, to set the screen area available for desktop icons? By this I mean I want to exclude icons from an area of roughly 100 pixels from both sides of the desktop. I know I can just move the ones that are there and they will stay, but if I download a file, or plug in a flash drive or optical disc, Gnome has a tendency to place them to the far left of the desktop, and if I clean up by name they all move.
