Question rox filer question


does anyone know how -- or if it's possible -- to get rox to open in a particular directory as the default? i've searched through the options and read the documentation, and the best i can come up with is to assign hotkeys for specific directories. that's pretty useful, but i'd also like to change the default. thx.

If you use a pinboard with it to manage your desktop just create the folder you want or drag it to the desktop. Then all you have to do is click on it to open it. You can also specify which directory to open if you open it with a terminal $rox /home/craig/Apps.

Personally I use keyboard shortcuts and the desktop in combination.

Depending on how you are opening Rox-filer and the window manager you are using ; you should be able to set the menu item for Rox to open to whatever directory you want.

I use F2 to open rox with the pinboard.
key "F2" rox -pinboard=mypinboard
