Re: Why are there no desktop icons with Wayland?

Hi Franz,

They are indeed missing in Wayland, even when forcing the setting with Gnome Tweak Tool -- does it work for you? I'm on Ubuntu Gnome 17.04. Out of curiosity, what was the rationale behind this design decision? It seems weird to remove something without providing a replacement or alternative.

Hey Sebastien,

to not have any desktop icons per default is a design decision by gnome and has nothing to do with Wayland.

You can bring them back with the extra settings in gnome tweak tools... I have never missed them once I got used to having a clean desktop though.

If they are missing only in Wayland that might be a bug.

Hope that helps.

Hi there,

I'm coming back to Gnome following up the announced death of Unity, and had one question that I couldn't find any answer for: why are there no desktop icons in Gnome/Wayland? Is this a design decision, or a purely technical decision that will get resolved in the (hopefully) near future?
