I recently installed Ubuntu 22.04 LTS on my computer. I want to remove the home folder icon from the desktop.

It used to be (20.04) that you could use this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.desktop-icons show-home false

You also used to be able to hide the home folder icon using Gnome Tweaks, but this option no longer exists.

Is there an equivalent that I can run in 22.04?

Thanks in advance!

In "Settings", "Appearance", uncheck the option "Show Personal folder" in the section "Desktop Icons".

enter image description here

The setting show-home has moved to org.gnome.shell.extensions.ding, so the command

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.ding show-home false

will work in Ubuntu 22.04 and up.
