Fluxbox + pcmanfm
Hey, i've just recently wanted to change my Linux experience up a bit by changing distros and making my box more lightweight by using Slackware and Fluxbox. With knowing very little about getting my way around both Slackware and Fluxbox i think i've done fairly well. But i've it a bump, i installed PCmanFM and having troubles with the icons. I tried goggling like always, and saw that i had to make a file '~/gtkrc-2.0' which i did and added the line:
well I don't use fluxbox but lxde.
your icons should be editted from /home/yourname/Desktop
eg one of my icons....when opened with an editor reads
Comment=A fast GTK+ Image Viewer
But to get icons onto your desktop...all I do is copy the file from ..../usr/share/applications
I don't know if it's the same issue, but some people recently have been having problems with gtk icons. It's a recurrent issue that happens once in a while as new gtk versions come out. It might worth a try, check this:
I maintain the pcmanfm.SlackBuild and I use pcmanfm on Fluxbox.
The ~/.gtkrc.2.0 should contain the following:
You could also use something like LXAppearance to define your gtk and icon themes. I started using it once I had installed some random icon themes once with strange names and couldn't work out the capitalisation et al for the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file.
