Desktop icons and background gone


I recently installed MineOS on a new computer and while it worked initially, now after booting the desktop background is blank and all of my desktop icons and taskbar icons are missing (except the Trash shows a folder instead of a trashcan).

Any ideas of why this is happening? Sorry if this was posted somewhere else, I searched and couldn’t find anything.

I am very new to MineOS and linux in general. This forum has been super helpful already, so thanks everyone for contributing to it!
