Show Desktop icons

Hello!
I am newbie Manjaro
I was using windows / elementary os
I am wondering how to make desktop icons visible
tweaks desktop icons extension doesn't work
and thanks

Coming from either of those OS Cinnamon or KDE would be a better fit than GNOME

Since you tagged it gnome, I will assume that is your DE.

Do you have the show desktop icons extension installed ? you probably need that. gnome removed desktop icons functionality a while ago.

apparently they tried that :man_shrugging:

I dont know .. does gnome-tweaks actually download the extension for you ?

No, that would be too simple :slight_smile:

EDIT - @HBO Manjaro's gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons may need downgrading for desktop icons to work:
