Ubuntu – No desktop icons after uninstalling nemo


I tested nemo on Ubuntu 12.04. I made it the default file manager. When I uninstalled it, desktop icons disappeared and I can't do a right click on desktop to open menu.

How can I make Nautilus the default file manager, may this solve the problem ?

You can try with launching dconf-editor then go to:

org -> gnome -> desktop -> background

and put the tick on show-desktop-icons as explained in the image below:

dconf editor window with show desktop icons option
