    Default Icons in desktop in random positions

    I have 3 problems.
    - The icons in my desktop is always changing randomly upon startup
    - Evince can't remember the last page i read before quitting
    - Unable to mount usb automatically (have to do 'mount /dev/sdc1/ /media/usb' and 'df -h' every startup)

    All of these problems happened just recently. I thought they were coming from unresolved packaging but after upgrading and distro-upgrading from packman only, and gnome, the problems still persist. If it helps, here's my zypper lr -d

    Sorry, I can't help with any of the three problems. Just some advice. Please post separate threads for each problem, you'll tend to get more responses that way.

    Weird problems... Maybe first try is to reset your gnome configuration?
    Code:
    mv ~/.gconf ~/gconf_bak
    mv ~/.gconfd ~/gconfd_bak
