  • No. It was due to tweak tool. Problem resolved. Thanks guys.. Jun 10 '16 at 3:41

This problem can be caused by installing Nemo file manager. If you have Nemo installed and don't want it, remove it using the Software Center or by running sudo apt-get remove nemo


This problem was caused by the "Enable Desktop Icons" feature in the Tweak tool. Disabling that feature restores the desktop to how it should be.

  • I have the updated tweaks installed and I don't have any problems
