No more icons on desktop in buster
Originally created by @CyrilBrulebois on #16283 (Redmine)
GNOME upstream removed support for icons on the desktop, which means our documentation link disappears in buster.
Unfortunately, that’s also what we’re using to make sure the desktop is ready.
Plan so far: check whether including the
gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons package (currently only in
experimental) can bring back the old behaviour; installing that
package isn’t sufficient as links aren’t clickable by default, and their
icons aren’t displayed either; right-clicking on them and allowing
execution does the trick though (with an extra curvy arrow that needs to
be taken into account); hopefully only a matter of settings.
If that takes too much time, removing icons entirely is an option.
In the meanwhile, the relevant image check will be disabled.
