XFCE Icon Position Scrambled
I realize that similar bug reports have been filed before and this seems to be a well known problem. However - I've been asked by XFCEnation on Twitter to re-file, so here I go.
I have a multi-monitor setup on Debian Buster. On login to XFCE, the icon positions are lost (reset) when XFCE determines that the screen resolution has changed. However - for whatever reasons XFCE has problems finding the correct resolutions and I ended up with 3 different files in
icons.screen0.5744x1090.rc icons.screen0.5744x983.rc icons.screen0.5744x984.rc
after a few re-starts after a complete new Debian installation this afternoon. Needless to say: I didn't change any screen resolutions.
As discussed on several places online, making the .config/xfce4/desktop directory immutable stops those resets (but comes with other problems).
Hope I could help.
