I updated to FC 16 from FC 14 (yum update). There are no icons Desktop. Something not went right during the update ? I usually have files on desktop, I would like to click and open them, also seeing files on Desktop is a reminder. now I have open file manager, go to Desktop directory and open files.

Any help is appreciated.

That's from GNOME 3. The desktop is not managed by nautilus by default (no files diplayed). You could change this behavior using the command line:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons true

Or by using the graphic application gnome-tweak-tool

$ su -c "yum install gnome-tweak-tool"

More at fedora unity

I know here is not the place to say it, but I think that I would be a great idea that desktop was managed by nautilus by default. This is the meaning of "desktop", right?
