Question Auto refresh desktop (Gnome)


(following this unsolved thread)

Is there any way to auto-refresh my desktop every time i add a new file/folder?

I don't want to press Ctrl+R (F5, click on refresh, clean up by name...) every time a new file is on the desktop.

Could be a function that works as in Window$, automatically lines up new files to the grid.

For me, this happens by default on ubuntu 10.04, gnome. I don't need to press any refresh keys.
Perhaps you have accidentally disabled this function.

Try creating a new user, and see if it works for them (as it does for me).
