Get Rid of Desktop Icons in Ubuntu 14.04
So, it seemed that I could not get red of my desktop icons in Ubuntu 14.04. Unity Tweak tool did not remove them and neither did command lines like
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop home-icon-visible false
It turns out that the problem was related to Nemo which I had installed earlier. Nemo has it’s own desktop settings and so changing the settings in Nautilus has no effect.
The following commands worked for me:
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop computer-icon-visible false gsettings set org.nemo.desktop home-icon-visible false gsettings set org.nemo.desktop volumes-visible false gsettings set org.nemo.desktop computer-icon-visible false
