Get rid of the Desktop icon in Nautilus 3.10 side bar

November 7, 2014

Add inĀ ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

gtk-shell-shows-desktop=0

Remove all entries in ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs but let this one :

XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/"

If you remove this too, each time nautilus is launched, it will create a ~/Desktop folder.

Remove folder Desktop if it exists
