As many users may know, Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.04 use an older version of Nautilus (3.26) because the default version 3.28 of the Gnome file manager has its desktop icon feature, and Ubuntu developers want to keep that feature.
About a month ago, the desktop icon (Gnome Shell extension) restored the desktop icon in Gnome. Add to To the Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo repository. With this extension, Nautilus no longer needs the desktop icon feature, so the default Gnome file manager is finally updated to the latest version (3.30) in Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo.
Moreover, the “Desktop Icon” extension is Add to To the default Ubuntu Gnome Shell session, but it is not installed by default, so I installed the snapshot myself from the Ubuntu 19.04 repository to get the screenshots used in this article.
Currently, both changes can be passed Proposed file, And will be promoted to a regular repository after being properly tested.
If you are interested in the new features in Nautilus 3.30 since the 3.26 version used by Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10, please refer to it Change log.
