There is a XFCE bug in which when using multiple monitors, and after rebooting the system, icons will rearrange themselves usually to the monitor on the left.
I added the following aliases to my .bashrc file
#Locks Desktop Icons in Place.
alias lock=”sudo chattr +i ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/icons*“
alias unlock=”sudo chattr -i ~/.config/xfce4/desktop/icons*”
Basically, by making the desktop icons immutable, you can literally lock them into place. That way after reboot whatever script is causing the issue, won’t overwrite your settings, thus leaving the icons in the screen you intent. If you would like to add new icons, simply run unlock on your terminal. add the new icons into position and run lock to finish the job.
Not a major issue but something that has been bothering me for a while.
Hey guys, I’m working on a series of virtual box tutorials which I will have up and running hopefully by the end of the week.
