Hello,

after an update, I think from 3.24 to 3.30, all gnome desktop icons and related settings are gone.

How can I get desktop icons back?

Note I found information on reddit and some other places that says some messy and cumbersome software installation is required and still does not quite restore the feature:

- Must install a special gnome shell extension
-- This process has also become more tedious
- Must first install a browser extension
- This additional software can not be installed and maintained with distribution tools
- There is something called chrome-gnome-shell which is said to have an effect wrt this installation process, but i could find none

And as an extra surprise,
- No more drag n drop

Before I try this: Is there a better alternative to get desktop icons in gnome?

Thanks...

Ok, so gentoo has

gnome-extra/gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons

to get around the installation/update process.

Drag n drop is still broken.
