I simply don't see icons on the desktop.  I have an almost-fresh install of Bodhi 4.1.0 with Moksha 0.2.1.  The shelf works fine, all the modules work fine, IBar works fine, the wallpaper works fine, the theme works fine, but I don't see any desktop icons!  I don't think this is the intended behavior, because there were desktop icons in the live disc.  Yet I have been having difficulty finding any posts by anyone with this issue.  I would simply like to see the contents of ~/Desktop, since I like to keep files visually arranged as part of my workflow.  I temporarily gave up and been using pcmanfm for my desktop, but that has its own problems.  I'd appreciate any help getting the Moksha desktop working as I want.

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Moksha does not support desktop icons. pcmanfm  or nautilus is the only solution at this time.

this thread closely resembles your post, but remember there are other window managers out there that support desktop icons out-of-the-box

Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything
