I have, some way or two, messed up my desktop. Suddenly the folders in my /home/fred/ directory appear as icons on my desktop. If I delete them from the desktop I also delete them from the /home/fred directory.
I no longer have a desktop directory, the desktop and /fred directory seem to have merged into one directory.
Has anyone seen this before? How can I correct it?
Is this the correct forum for this question?
BTW, I am using Fedora 8 with all updates.
