In GNOME 3 desktop icons are hidden by default. I tried to show them up this way:
gconftool-2 --set -t bool /org/gnome/desktop/background/show-desktop-icons true
It didn't work. So I tried:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true
gconftool-2 --get /org/gnome/desktop/background/show-desktop-icons says that value isn't set for this key.
gconf-editor does not list
/org folder. Why?
