shortcut for attached usb stick and second hd
from ubuntu I am acustomed that a symbol appears on the desktop when attaching a usb device or a second mounted hd. Si there any similar in MX or Antix Linux, and how an I configure this?

xfce settings -> Desktop TAB=icons

at bottom you will see default icons
tick the box for removeable

saturn1955 12-04-2019 10:04 AM

Uninstall it again, and take care not to break your system in the process.
Actually, if everything is working OK, do NOT uninstall it.

XFCE-Settings is part of MX Linux already. Just look in the menu, probably under Settings...

I finnaly could open the xfce settings, but at the bottom I don t see default icons

The xfce4-settings-manager shows a bunch of icons in a grid. One of them is labeled Desktop. Click it, you get a new window. Click the third Tab, might be labeled "Icons". Scroll down, it has checkboxes for which icons will be displayed on the desktop.

that what I see is named Display and then appears the monitor. But there is no third tab.

Please look at the attached file.
There's an icon called "Desktop" (somewhere in the upper right).

from post 2....forgot to must maximise the window to see removeable devices

saturn1955 12-09-2019 12:40 PM

I forgot to mention, that I use Antix Linux and I think, that xfce is not included in the basic version? What kind of Desktop is the best for that purpuse?
This window doesn t show up in my system.

ahh ok so what window managers do you like on AntiX?

I don't use AntiX....but I have used a lot of WMs on Tinycore.
Altho in your OP you want ......a clickable icon on the desktop.....would a clickable icon in the file manager suffice?
after must know you just inserted another storage it makes sense to open it with a file manager unless its for media playing.

file manager=pcmanfm can automount removeable media...altho not tested on AntiX
file manager=spacefm ditto

Yes, I wanted a clickable icon on the desktop. But that is a dream. I installed krusader, this prog can handle mounted devices. And is able to unmount them.
