When you navigate to the Desktop folder in nautilus or a terminal can you see the folder? Can you see other things on the desktop?

Play with the mintDesktop application and see if changing settings on that fixes it for you. It's under system - preferences, or I think it is in the control panel thing.

Is the Computer icon on the desktop? I think that was default on mine, since I didn't turn it on.
