    Desktop icons (again)

    Hello,

    i have Ubuntu 12.04.
    My problem: when I save, for example, a picture on the first working space, its only there.
    So the second workin space is still empty.

    What do I have to change, that the icons, folders, picture and so on are on all working spaces?

    Thank you for your answer!

    Ps: I had this problem already:

    But since the last update, the problem appeared again.

    I assume you have 12.04 with compiz and unity? How many work spaces? Two or four?
    It could be an issue with the compiz and/or unity settings. Unfortunately, no easy answer without more information.

    Are all of your graphics drivers updated? Are you running compiz and unity? Like he^ said, more information would help determine the problem.

    I have the normal Ubuntu desktop.
    Nothing special is installed.
    (4 working spaces)
    The normal way, like it is on the installing cd.

    Do you have CompizConfig settings manager installed? Or Ubuntu Tweak?
    In Ubuntu Tweak, go to tweaks and then to desktop icons and make sure desktop icons is set to on.
    At least this is a starting point and the path of least resistance to fixing the problem.

    I haven't installed anything like that.

    And it works again.
    At least sometimes.

    But why does it sometimes work and sometimes not?
    Strange.
