+1000 seriously one of the only things about Linux that annoys me coming from Windows and OSX. Furthermore the spacing of the grid needs to be adjusted or adjustable... there should not be a folders width gap between my columns. It's like that person at the stop light that could fit at least one car between his bumper and the car ahead..

this will need to be addresses in nemo rather than cinnamon, since it's nemo that handles the icons on the desktop, right?
Oh it aligns them vertically? I thought the "keep aligned" feature just didn't work.
Ido not know for sure @telcnas but I do agree that it is for all intetnts a bug.
I think that it should be obvious that icon spacing should be present.
@Ironclad the reason that I found Mint was the event of Gnome shell that made Fedora completely useless :-) I use the desktop, just as I use the "real" desktop to put things I am working on.
@hammer459 I will try that also. Thanks. Though nothing goes on the desktop in Gnome 3 by default (which is one of the reasons I don't use it), Cinnamon does have it by default, and other desktop settings to suit it. Same with XFCE, LXDE and others. It's just really inconvenient for people who use the desktop a lot. :/
@Hammer459 But we already have this concept of icon spacing, only the thing is, it only applies in vertical fashion....so why not to have this thing horizontally as well???
In Gnome 3 we know that icons not get displayed on desktop so in that case excluding such concept of spacing icon in horizontal or vertical manner makes complete sense. Now even though Cinnamon is based on Gnome-shell, they already included the concept of vertical spacing, so why they prevented icons getting aligned in horizontal fashion as well????
It seems like a bug to me now.....
sounds logical and makes complete sense....promoting.... :)
This is a problem as of Gnome 3 due to the fact that in Gnome Shell you are prevented from even putting anythig at all on desktop. Thus the developers of Gnome (that is the base of Cinnamon) likely see no need for icon spacing :-)
I promote the idea but you should post it at https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon
