Updated to Ubuntu 13.04 and installed Xfce desktop environment and some how my Ubuntu desktop is not getting rendered properly , i was unable to right click and change wall papers and unable to see desktop icons.
As the title suggests, my desktop icons don't show on the desktop after I upgraded to 12.10 from 12.04. Also, I can't right-click on the desktop - no menu appears. Everything else seems OK though. What could it be?
If I open Nautilus, my desktop icons and files are still there in my Desktop folder.
I don't know why but there are times when my desktop will look fuzzy as well as the icons on it. The panels are unaffected and so are the programs running, I will just see the fuzziness when I go to look at my desktop.

When I click the icons, their fuzziness goes away but the area around them is still the same.
I have a problem. I deleted some gnome packages , and now Ubuntu won't work as it should.
Plus i installed some programs for system tweak(new look of icons etc) and delete them and only left Ubuntu Tweak . I log in system and i cross with mouse over icons in slide-bar and name of icons stays but won't go away ... and desktop picture won't show up ...
An offtrack question . I'm new to Ubuntu .
Have installed Ubuntu 14.0.4 .
Since this morning, all desktop icons are gone .
I can log in to Ubuntu but after that desktop is completely blank, the menu icons which used to come at the left hand side of the desktop are missing .
Also , pressing Ctrl+ALT+T to access terminal is also not working .
Hi everyone,I'm running Waldorf with testing repositories and XFCE 4.10. Something happened to my install where no icons are showing on the desktop and the wallpaper is no longer justified but is off kilter to the right. I can't right click on the desktop either. I've gone over all of the settings in the XFCE Settings Manager and tried some fixes from the Arch wiki.
If you’re not happy with the default desktop environment (Unity shell on GNOME3) in Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), then you can try installing some alternative desktop such as MATE, Cinnamon, KDE etc or a lightweight desktop environment such as XFCE.
Why go for a Lightweight Desktop Environment ?
low resource requirements (it can also run smooth on older computers)
I had trouble with my Desktop screen the past few days. When I start the system, a default Ubuntu Desktop I use appears and the unity icons show on the right side. But the icons I have added on my Desktop do not show on the screen to the right. If I go to Firefox for instance, I have no problems viewing websites, emails, etc.
