LXDE empty desktop


i am running debian wheezy with a stripped-down lxde-core (i removed pcmanfm and a few other things)
terminal > any file manager

i thought that if i would place something in /home/user/Desktop it would also appear on my desktop
but nothing appears on my desktop when doing so

this isn't normal, right? how do i get stuff to appear on my desktop?

It's normal, if you have removed the file manager that shows your desktop contents.
