Description Lewis Smith 2017-07-10 11:25:28 CEST
Description of problem:
Gnome Classic desktop. In addition to the normal desktop icons, some (notably Home & Trash) are overlaid as oversize duplicates. These duplicate icons are:
- inactive, cannot be selected
- untranslated
- disappear if the corresponding correct icon is removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mageia 6, Classic ISO of 8 July 2017, probably that released.

How reproducible:
Static problem.

I should have said that this was a 6-desktop install on real hardware.

Classic ISO 10/11 July, real h/w, 6 desktops
Improvement: the normal size icons are gone, only the oversize ones remain; no duplicates or overlaying. This is visually acceptable, shall close this bug.

To note, however: Only 2-3 desktop icons are shown, whereas the former correct size ones was a fuller set. Those now shown:
From SDDM: Home, Trash
From LightDM: Home, Trash, JoinMageia

Resolution: (none) => FIXED

I spoke too soon, so am re-opening this bug.
The Home & Wastebasket desktop icons *do nothing*. Where the JoinMageia icon is present (shown as a shortcut), that does work.
At present, this desktop effectively lacks any useful filestore icons. Luckily the Places menu provides the same & more functionality.

Resolution: FIXED => (none)

M7beta2.2 Classic x64 6 desktop installation
I have tried launching Gnome Classic desktop from all display managers:
- LightDM
In every case, the desktop has *no* icons at all; nor does it seem possible to add them. A neat solution, in line with the 'real' Gnome desktop. The Places menu substitutes for the usual desktop shortcuts.
So this bug remains for M6 but clearly does not matter (no-one else has complained). I am closing it.

Resolution: (none) => FIXED
