[HOW TO] Show icons on Desktop in Gnome 3

The latest release of Fedora 15 lovelock with the new Gnome 3 is quite good by itself but personally I can't imagine my desktop without icons(its way too empty and boring) or the option to right click on the desktop or even the minimize and maximize option. Some maybe like the new Gnome 3 as it is and some maybe not, so for those who don't and want to add some previous Gnome features here is a way to do it:

Install Tweak Tool
  • Fedora
sudo yum install gnome-tweak-tool
  • Ubuntu
sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
When the installation is finished open Tweak Tool and go to section File Manager, then enable the option "Have file manager handle the desktop"

Your desktop is now enabled and you can click and also create launchers as before!!!

It is more user friendly this way in my opinion.
