Sorry had a brain fart, should have posted the relevant info earlier.
Xfce 4 Desktop Environment
version 4.6.1 (Xfce 4.6)
I don't understand why you want me to look for icons though. :)
I have a desktop folder already and I can navigate to it via Thunar. So it
seems to me that it's an issue of XFce starting up in the wrong directory.
I'm not running Nautilas (It was installed previously and Xfce displayed the
desktop IF I ran Nautilas). Nautilas was too "heavy" so I removed it. I
would like the desktop back though as I found it handy to have "shortcuts"
