ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm wanting to change the lay down code for the desktop only so that icons on the nautilus desktop are layed down right to left instead of left to right (or rather top to bottom right to left). Just like on the Mac. I don't want other nautilus windows to be affected (ie stay the same left to right). I found this code in nautilus-icon-container.c
/* FIXME bugzilla.gnome.org 42479:
* Need to handle T_B_R_L differently. */
lay_down_icons_tblr (container, icons);
But it appears that this would change not only the desktop but other nautilus window icon layouts. I then found the following in fm-desktop-icon-view.c
icon_container_set_workarea (NautilusIconContainer *icon_container,
int left, right, top, bottom;
int screen_width, screen_height;
I'm new to programming so if anybody could give me any pointers as to whether or not this is achievable that would be great. I've posted to the Nautilus mailing list and also searched it but got nothing.
