Xfce desktop icons

Hello guys,
I have fedora 17. Just recently I moved to Xfce from Kde, since I have read that it is much faster.
Indeed, I have realized that Xfce works faster in my old computer now and I find it more comfortable in many aspects.
However the problem I faced is my desktop icons disappeared. Traditional drug & drop doesn't help.
I didn't figure out how could I return them back though settings or administrative panel.

I'm relatively new in Linux. So, please help me to deal with this little issue.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Xfce desktop icons

Run a task manager (like htop) and see if xfdesktop is running.
If it isn't you might want to start it from the terminal, maybe with
xfdesktop &
It might be xfdesktop4 instead.
