This should be possible, but how??? I read in their forum that I should startup rox instead of xfdesktop in xinitrc, but it didn't work. I tried to do it in at least two different xinitrc since it didn't say which one... And I started thinking, the "rox" package for arch, is it the whole rox, or just the rox-filer? If this isn't the problem, how can I do this?
You can add <whatever_you'd_like_to_start_at_boot> to a 'script' located in ~/Desktop/Autostart.
The script may look like this:
#!/bin/bash rox -p=Default
You can then add any program you like to start like that:
#!/bin/bash rox -p=Default& gkrellm& <whatever_you_like>
Hope that helps.
I didn't write it to the file but I did as root:
killall xfdesktop rox -p=Default&
in a terminal and I got some icons on my desktop! Three other problems accurd now... How do I change the background? How do I change the fonts to be used? (and will those two setting affect the standard rox-filer too? I don't want that if it's doable...) And three, all minimized applications shows an icon on the desktop, how can I get rid of that?
