Can't Delete/Move Icons From Home Screen

    Sorry if there was a thread on this topic. I looked, but didn't come across one.

    I recently ran into this problem where I can't do anything to the icons on my home screen. Usually when I longpress an icon I can move or delete it, but now none of those options pop up.

    I rebooted my phone 3-4 times, I restored an earlier backup & still nothing.

    It's weird because if I use the longpress function in the app drawer it works. I can add apps to my home screen, move to trash, etc.

    Phone Info:
    Model Number: LG-P999
    Android Version: 2.3.7
    Kernel Version:
    Mod Version: Cyanogenmod-7-20120902-Nightly-p999
    Build Number: Gingerbread

    Why is it doing this? Is there any way I can fix it?

    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    EDIT: I found the solution. My desktop was locked. I had to unlock it by going to menu > more > unlock desktop [​IMG]

    I have the same ROM as you (Cyanogenmod 7.2, nightly), and my desktop locked after deleting a catalog. Don't know why it does that.
