XFce and desktop icons
by chemicalscum on Mon 12th Apr 2004 15:06 UTC

"I found myself really taking to XFCE, and I would probably use it exclusively for a while if I could have icons on my desktop"

You can use the Rox filer to manage the desktop and put icons on the XFce desktop.

If you have Rox installed - then in your $HOME$/.xfce/.xinitrc file comment out the xfdesktop line and insert:

rox --pinboard=PIN

Then on startup you can drag and drop program and directory icons from the Rox filer onto the destop.
