Desktop icons don't load on startup
I'm running cinnamon 1.6. Recently I was playing around with workspaces and then my computer suddenly froze so I shut it down by holding down the power key (the physical power button to my computer). When I restarted the desktop icons didn't show up, although everything else did (the panel). Every time i reboot the desktop icons are nowhere to be found. But if I start the file manager to browse my files the desktop icons suddenly reappear. How do I fix this. Did my forced shutdown mess up my computer?
