Open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and type in:

nautilus

Then copy and paste any output that is thrown up and post it here.

Then run this command:

gconftool-2 -g /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop

And copy and paste it's output here.

(If there is any difficulty copying and pasting form the terminal, make a screenshot, log on at launchpad (launchpad.net) and attach it to your post here - (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-applets/+question/43997)).

Can you help with this problem?
