I'm running Lubuntu 14.04.3 LTS on a 2009 Acer Aspire netbook. It runs like a champ! One little thing that niggles, I can't remove the text under the desktop icons. I have used the "Customize look and feel" in "Preferences" to no avail.

I have also hunted high and low on the Interweb. I can find nothing that helps. 

So, the question is, is this possible? 

I would, as always, appreciate any input. Thanks.

Hey NickAu, I appreciate your input and apologize for wasting your time.

The answer was staring me in the face! It's in "Desktop preferences/appearance", and at the bottom of the window I click on "Front of label text". I didn't understand the first 10 TIMES (!) I looked exactly what it did.

You did not waste my time at all.

 

You are welcome.
