Hi All First time here & user of Debian, long time experience with Jurassic OS’s but using Mint for 3 years on Laptop.If I can do it with a GUI, I will.Main mission in life manufacture of computerised weighing/packaging machines. So, now that is out of the way.
Running Debian Stretch on a Beaglebone Black Rev.C Lxqt version 0.11.1, Qt 5.7.1 Debian image:debian-9.8-lxqt-armhf-2019-03-03-4gb.img.xz
The problem: I have my uSD setup to do software development, and if I attempt to use the /configuration settings/Session settings, it all appears ok until I reboot. Then the screen shows the content of the Home folder in the form of folders. All my icons are gone. But if I browse with PCManFM to the desktop, then the icons are all there. I am only using one workspace (the default I assume). So what screen am I looking at? No amount of fiddling with preferences will change this behaviour.
Is this a known fault, and is there a solution ? If not a fault, then how should I change my approach to this.
