So I heard if I edit the user-dir.dir file I can limit what is displayed on the desktop but every time i restart (Or logout & back on) it returns to its normal state. iv tryed editing it with su rights and still same result. So how do i change the file and make it stay ? any help would be much appreicated im very new with gnome just switched it today from openbox just for icons tryed the pcfman that did the same thing.

thanks johnraff for telling it...
