    Hi. Try to delete them as root. Maybe that works...

    Hi that's the same problem I posted recently:
    Gnome desktop icons resetting - openSUSE Forums

    If you login as root the "locked icons" are not showed, this is a very annoying issue.

    By the way user can use the icons that are working correctly if you double click on them, so it is not a blocking issue.

    Hi,

    Perhaps it's a read but not write type of thing?

    I can suggest one thing and that's to delete it as root. You said it points to /usr/share/dist/desktop-files/

    So hit alt+f2 then type:

    Code:
    gnomesu nautilus
    Browse to that folder and delete the icons.

    Good Luck,

    Ian

    Hello.
    There is an other way.
    Type in this in your terminal, as a usual user:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --set /apps/nautilus/desktop/predefined_items_dir --type string ""
    Then, on the desktop, press F5, to refresh it.

    Seen this tips here: http://www.labo-linux.org/tips/opens...s-icones-daide

    Bye !
