Question LXDE displays home folder rather than "Desktop" folder


I know, this sounds like a noob question. I'm running LXDE on top of Openbox and the desktop display is of all the folders in my home dir. It would be more useful if it displayed the Desktop folder. Try as I might I can't find where to change this behaviour (that's the noob bit!). Anyone?

EDIT classic rtfm - http://wiki.lxde.org/en/PCManFM

Solved!

I am unable to follow your question. It would help if you provided some more details. From what I understood out of your keywords:

Short answer: Openbox doesn't include a desktop manager and you need to rely on SpaceFM for managing Desktop/icons/wallpaper.

Provide some more info please (screenshot with arrows and annotations on the image will be best)

Thumbs up Thanks, but solved

As I put in the edited text, I solved this problem by reading the LXDE wiki properly (!) Thanks for taking an interest though.
