Re: No application or applet icons in gmome-shell-3.10.3

There are no application icons in the top panel, however there are
various gnome extensions to install an applications menu in the top bar.

You can find extensions at, you do need a
firefox add-on to properly use this website. However a lot of their
programmers use a github page to store their extensions, so you can get
them there too.

To enable desktop icons you need to set the setting in
gnome-tweak-tool, which is a python application for advanced
gnome-shell settings.

I can use nautilus to navigate to /usr/local/share/applications and
launch various gnome apps by double-clicking on the *desktop files,

no application icons on the desktop.

Note that I've enabled desktop icons using dconf-editor, but this
does not change anything - any trouble-shooting suggestions would be
