Hello all,

I am locking down a desktop, and when the .desktop files for a user
are made root:root 644, a padlock icon is shown by them.

I would like to avoid this, as it makes the desktop look more unfriendly.
I have looked in GConf, but didn't find anything specific - however, I
might not have looked in the right places.

Is there a way to disable the displaying of the padlock for icons?


This is very easy to deal with:-
Using a terminal window;

$ cd  /home/<user-name>
$su   <enter>
Password:  <type root password, <enter>>
# chown -R  <use-name>   Desktop  <enter>

and quit the terminal. Now the owner of that profile owns and has full rights to anything on the Desktop.
