Question Missing icons on desktop after login in KDE


Hello.
I found this bug message: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=304264

Same bug manifests on my PC with KDE.

Sometimes after login in KDE - not always - all icons are missing. But when I will change desktop layout or activity with other desktop layout everything is OK.

The bug message isn't still confirmed. But the bug manifests almost two years on my desktop. Can you confirm that you have same problem?

Can you vote for this bug on website https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=304264?
Can you give your screenshots?

My OS: Mageia 4 with KDE 4.11.4

I got a advice: to delete other activities.
So far everything is fine.

Tip with deleting other activities doesn't work.

Do you use same desktop layout for KDE?
Do you have same problem like me any time?

Are the icons you want displayed on the desktop the ones we see along the taskbar on the bottom of the screen?
Are you using "Folder View" in KDE for your layout?
What are the contents of the ~/Desktop folder?

My desktop folder is ~/Plocha (in Czech language) and I use desktop layout with name "Folder".
The icons aren't visible on the desktop even when I moving the slider on the right side down. The desktop is empty.
But this effect is occasional after login. The desktop was displayed correctly today.

Sorry, I meant that the icons aren't visible. The desktop folder contains two files.

I'm not sure I'm understanding you. In your set up, are all meaningful folder names translated into Czech. Is your "home" folder called "dům"? (as in /dům/"username")
It may be the case that you really do need to put your .desktop files into a folder called ~/Desktop and not ~/Plocha .
