Manjaro Gnome Desktop icons do not work

Hello everyone!
My Manjaro gnome (which I installed in July 2020, Nibia 20.2.1) does not have any icons and right click on Desktop shows only Background/Display settings. The funny thing is that on my Laptop (installed Manjaro Gnome in June 2020 Nibia 20.2) the Desktop works fine with icons.

I’ve tried also 5.4 LTS Kernel and doesn’t work. I have gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons installed on my PC.
I really do not know what to do :frowning:
Thanks in advance.

Good evening. I think I had the same issue upon recently after several updates.
Try to open Extensions menu and find “Desktop Icons” there and expand it. If there is an error like No JS module 'tweener' found in search path, then it’s because the tweener module has been moved to a new path, from imports.ui.tweener to imports.tweener.tweener. More info about code changes is here

However I’d rather recommend to use “Desktop Icons NG” anyway, since it’s more feature rich and seems to be less buggy. It should be already preinstalled on Manjaro and you can find it in the same extension menu. Just turn it on and you’re good to go. Best regards!


Hey, thanks for reply. I got this here:
Missing extension.js

The settings of extension had an error:
ImportError: No JS module '' found in search path
