Nautilus does not hide icons in the GNOME Classic Session The GNOME Tweak Tool to show or hide icons in the gnome session, where the icons are hidden by default, is ignored in the GNOME Classic Session. As a result, it is not possible to hide icons in the GNOME Classic Session even though the GNOME Tweak Tool displays this option.

nautilus now ignores the gsetting when running under the classic session. enabling/disabling still works in a normal gnome session.

It is possible (and Carlos will confirm or disconfirm) that desktop icons option is not valid for gnome-classic session. If so it should be disabled in that case otherwise it is quite confusing.

As comment 3 points out yes, it's not valid to disable them in gnome-classic session. I'm not aware that this was ever possible.

I agree gnome-tweak-tool should disable that button when that's the case.
