Is there any way to get icons onto my XFCE4 desktop?

I know that some people have accomplished this, but I don't know how. You might try asking over at the Xfce forums here (http://forum.xfce.org/) . Not as active at this forum, but quite often the developers stalk the boards there :)

Good luck,

An easy way to get icons on the desktop is to use nautilus as a file manager in XFCE 4.2. Nautilus will allow icons to be placed on your desktop. To get this to work at startup make sure sessions are being saved under XFCE Sessions and Startup. Open a copy of Nautilus, from a terminal type "nautilus&". Now logoff and select save session. Log back in and your desktop will be there.
