I would suggest having this bug filed marked against the Xenial series as 'Confirmed' since if it's been changed then the Xenial behavior likely wasn't intended and then mark the bug in general as Fix Released? Could Sebastien mark this as affecting Xenial because he is a Bug Control member?
** Changed in: nautilus (Ubuntu) Status: New => Fix Released -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to nautilus in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1413117 Title: icon captions info on desktop don't disappear Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Bug description: In nautilus, when I go to Edit -> Preferences -> Display -> icon captions, and change the highest order (first one) from None to Type (or anything else), this change is not applied to desktop icons and nothing happens to them. And when I set it back to None, Type captions (or whatever I selected at first) appear under desktop icons. This problem only occurs for desktop icons. It works fine for icons in other directories. Actually I expect that when I change icon captions from None to Type, type information of each file or directory appears under desktop icons, but nothing happens. And furthermore I expect that when I change it back to None, type information disappears, but they appear.
