he pin board has not yet been used ... set the default background.


After deinstallion of unused desktops I get the below mentioned message

Code:
The pin board has not yet been used ... set the default background. Start ROX-Filer with 'rox -p = Default' to activate the pin board.
STARTUP_DELAY="10" desktop-session.conf is set, but nothing but without any effect.
And how can I start ROX-Filer with 'rox -p = Default'. When I start the rox-filer, the minitures will appear, but how to make an entry rox -p = Default?
I checked the manual, but I dont find anything about that.

I hope that solves it.

Uninstalling things can have undesired side effects.

And the Rox desktop environment is a little different and possibly not easy to grasp in the beginning.

indeed, uninstalling things can have undesired side effects. But I guess, that Rox desktop environment is the only desktop that handles icons. Or are there others easier to handle?
I will try mxlinux on another pc, but I assume, that antix is better for older hardware.

Easier? Pcmanfm can handle desktop icons, along with all file managers of the gnome heritage, e.g. nemo.

I ve tried the above mentioned efforts, but in vain. I always get that nasty message. So what else can I do instead of migrating to mxlinux which comes with xfce desktop

Doesn't AntiX come with options to boot into different environments, with and without rox?

AntiX comes indeed with options to boot into different environments, with and without rox, but only rox is handling icons.

With

Quote:
cp /etc/skel/.desktop-session/desktop-session.conf /home/madmax/.desktop-session/

and then I changed STARTUP_DELAY="2" to STARTUP_DELAY="5"

it worked

Isn't spacefm also an option? It can handle desktop icons.
