My Mac OS X Desktop icon’s Disappeared

Today suddenly all icon’s on my Mac OS X Desktop disappeared or went missing and showed only the default icons. When I opened the Console app and searched for the icon process I saw messages like this:

24/11/13 13.36.30,122 com.apple.IconServicesAgent[262]: main Failed to composit image for binding VariantBinding [0x34b] flags: 0x8 binding: FileInfoBinding [0x253] - extension: jpg, UTI: public.jpeg, fileType: ????.

Ahh…. it’s the  “com.apple.IconServicesAgent” who is the culprit.

Well, I just removed the “Finder” preference file in my home folder and restarted Finder.

$ rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist; sudo killall -v Finder
