I do not know the specifics of Gnome, but I can give you a few general
pointers: As far as I know, all icons-appear-on-desktop behavior needs
the packages "udev", "hal" and "dbus". For Gnome you will probably need
"gnome-volume-manager" in addition to that. Therefore we should first
check if you have all these packages installed properly. Please post the
output of the following command:

dpkg -l udev hal* dbus* hotplug* gnome-volume-manager
