All system folders are displayed on the desktop


Just finished installing Bodhi5 to my liking and something has gone wrong.
The following 21 folders are now showing on the Desktop (but not in the desktop folder as viewed by the file manager) bin,boot, cdrom, dev,etc, home lib, lib64, lost+found, and many more. How can I hide these? Everything is working fine.

Very weird.

Desktop icons are controlled with module called "Desktop icons" under File tab in modules section. As you learned, all items in /home/user/Desktop folder will be shown on the screen. Why the filesystem folders are shown on the screen is a mystery for me. We need more info.

As cord said, screenshot could be fine to see.

Stefan

PS: my tip: if you don't wanna see those folders at any prize, a simple solution is unloading that module. Of course if you are OK with the fact no other icons or files will shown.

Here are 2 screenshots.
I can disappear these by unloading to desktop module as advised but then when I insert my mp3 player is does not show up, so that is no good.
These files when you look in file manager are all in /

Did you experiment with something in Bodhi after installation? I really have know idea how to reproduce this issue. I just need to know more info if you played with some settings.

an old friend - now deceased from Sweden always said - "if it's not broke then don't fix it; and if you can't fix it then don't break it."

i learned a long time ago in linux since i know so little to be very careful in what you tweak. it may be easier to redo the system if you can. good luck.

Fiddling with settings is fine. This activity can change you to more skilled person. Good thing is, the Bodhi brand new installation takes just a few minutes. I broke my system hundreds time

So, sorry not helping you with a trivial advice but in this case I would reinstall Bodhi
In case you will configure Bodhi again and you manage to have the same issue, please report it here. Maybe it is a bug we have to look at and fix.

Thanx

Stefan

Just to be clear I was fiddling only in the gui.
I like Bodhi and everything is working so I will live in it a while.

Would this have recovered Moshka to it's 'pre-fiddling' status?

This is really a question, to be confirmed by those more experienced with the workings of Moshka: Is it likely that markcs' problem was confined to the .e directory, and specifically to its e subdirectory?

Location: ~/.e

Looking at my file structure, I see under .e a subdirectory, e.bkup, that is dated one day after .e's creation. I have no recollection of whether I did this, or if it happened automatically. It certainly couldn't show recent moshka modifications, but if the goal is to repair a corrupted desktop display, it seems restoring a directory backup would be easier than restoring the entire OS.

To satisfy my curiosity, do all Bodhi 5 users have this backup directory for .e? If not, I may have created it out of habit, from my past experiences with Englightement in earlier Bodhi versions.

Of course, if one is running something like Timeshift, then having the e.bkup subdirectory would be redundant.
