Glad it worked for you. I'd forgotten about the extension issue, though. 
For future reference when installing additional nautilus extensions, you 
can press ALT-F2 and enter "nautilus -q" to close nautilus (closes all 
nautilus windows plus removes desktop icons) and then ALT-F2 again and 
enter "nautilus" to restart it (desktop icons re-appear). The extension 
should be active then.
