Thank you. I often see people try things that have nothing to do with the issue, and sometimes I just have to ask why.

2019-01-22 23:19:05 -0500 marked best answer Restoring desktop icons

My cat has just walked over my keyboard and somehow managed to delete almost all of my desktop icons. I have a backup, but not of my desktop itself. Where else are the appropriate files stored so that I can restore them? I can probably copy some of them across from my laptop if all else fails, but I'd like to avoid going to that extreme. Any suggestions will be appreciated. (If it helps, I'm using Xfce, not Gnome.)
