When you turn on desktop icons, all files in the Desktop folder will appear on your desktop. If you put .desktop files in your Desktop folder, then they will appear as application shortcuts with the icon specified in the .desktop file.

You can copy desktop files from ~/.local/share/applications and /usr/share/applications

I had to edit my previous post, sorry.

The new entry is not 'Desktop Icons', but 'File Icons'.
Therefore the troubleshooting continues, I'm afraid.

EDIT:
After playing around a bit with the Desktop folder and creating a trash.desktop file, that Icon really is on the desktop.
So, in the end, looks like it is in fact the wanted feature.

But there's still one issue left.

When I try to access Desktop from the Main menu

Menu->Places->Desktop

I get an Error, telling me,

Quote:
File or folder not found
I guess, it is a translation issue, because that menu entry is pointing to
/home/MyUsername/Desktop
But since it is a German system, it must be pointing to
/home/MyUsername/Schreibtisch

Now, I probably have to look at the Menu settings, to fit that path with the German version,
but I don't know where to find that path, because there doesn't seem to be such a launcher.

EDIT2:
Now I found several desktop.desktop files.

Code:
locate desktop.desktop
/home/MyUsername/.e/e/fileman/favorites/desktop.desktop
/usr/share/applications/telegramdesktop.desktop
/usr/share/enlightenment/data/favorites/desktop.desktop
/usr/share/kservices5/searchproviders/opendesktop.desktop
Which one is representing the Menu?

Bodhi 5.1 is a remarkably fine piece of work. It gets it exactly right with its adherence to its "ultra lean" philosophy and its intelligently targeted four editions. On top of that, it's looking good as well. This will be a hit!

The wallpapers shown in some of the videos were created by past users. In particular a large number of them were created by Vaidotas. Most of these images have been taken from the internet and altered. As a result we do not have the legal right to place them in our repositories. Štefan refers to the bodhi-background-pack, that is a old package of background images created by Vaidotas. It is not in the BL 5.x repo nor can I place it in the repositories. However all these old backgrounds and more can be found by a dedicated effort to do so.

@madmax, your multiple posts here show a high degree of confusion and have nothing to do with the latest release. I have not been in any mood to deal with it and trying to recover from a rather serious illness. But please, start a new thread of your issues and do not spam posts having nothing to do with your issues.

And for the record, German translations in moksha needs some work and the desktop icons module is called EFM (Starter) when using the German language. That is what it was called in e17 and has not been updated for German in Moksha. We rely on users and volunteers to translate things for us and keep translations up to date. I am trying very much to focus on improving translations, but currently we have no one working on improving German or many other languages.

If it shows you something good, try 'sudo ubuntu-drivers install'.

@madmax If you're still figuring out how to use desktop icons, I'm sure I could help explain how to use them. For example on my kids computers their desktops are covered with shortcuts to games, set to start with single click and no mouse-over mime popup stuff. If you want a start menu on your desktop you can put a gadget there. But you can also just click blank part on desktop for start menu. But start new thread about desktop icons if you want me to reply further And I bet if you asked (in new thread) they could tell you how to update all the German in Moksha for everyones benefit, I've seen recent messages mentioning they appreciate help on translations... if I was good at any language they still need I woulda done it already, an easy way to help...

Sometimes I just have to edit or add things to my posts, because of typos or for example to improve some words or an explanation.
To avoid confusion, just wait a few minutes longer for your replies, please.


As for the EFM (Starter), it would improve someone's understanding very much,
if you could tell everybody (especially translators) the meaning of the abbreviation EFM.
By doing so, any native speaker of a language might help to find a better translation,
of course not just for German, but for whatever language.

Besides, I just found another issue in 5.1, after the installation of the package from testing repo.
The sorting order of files seems to be faulty, but it affects only files on a network drive.

Let me explain what I mean:

There are some files on my NAS drive named as in this example:

01 - FileA.xyz
02 - FileB.xyz
03 - FileC.xyz
04 - FileD.xyz
05 - FileE.xyz
06 - FileF.xyz
07 - FileG.xyz
08 - FileH.xyz
09 - FileI.xyz
10 - FileJ.xyz
11 - FileK.xyz

They were added one by one in the very same order as they appear in the above list,
so, sorting by name or by date of last modification should be the same in this case.

But when I sort them by date of last modification, they are actually sorted by name,
but when I sort them by name, the list looks like this (no matter if it's icons, list or details mode):

11 - FileK.xyz
04 - FileD.xyz
06 - FileF.xyz
03 - FileC.xyz
05 - FileE.xyz
02 - FileB.xyz
01 - FileA.xyz
08 - FileH.xyz
09 - FileI.xyz
10 - FileJ.xyz
07 - FileG.xyz

That's only happening in Bodhi.
When I access the same files from another distro, everything is ok.

I also verified this on my other Bodhi, the 32bit one, where I don't have the Moksha from the testing repo, yet.
The sorting methods are ok there, too.

Obviously, this is a bug in or caused by the Moksha from the testing repo.

Judging from this and other posts, you appear to have problems with the German translations. This is Linux: don't expect others to fix them, but scratch your own itch. Submit your own German translations. Don't complain, but contribute some time and effort to the project.

Like this:

How can I have problems with these translations, when it is my native language?
But I guess, the person who did the translations does, apparently.

As for the abbreviation 'EFM', it is just that I didn't know what that one means.
Meanwhile, I figured out that it is 'Enlightenment File Manager'.

But still, a file manager is something totally different compared to 'Desktop Icons'.
If I hadn't found out by chance, I never ever would have thought, 'EFM' was referring to 'Desktop Icons'.
I think, this was most likely the translation of a non-German speaking person.

From my personal point of view, that feature should better be called 'Allow desktop icons' (this would translate to 'Desktop Icons erlauben', btw.),
because everybody knows that usually, the Bodhi desktop doesn't accept launchers, and after unblocking the desktop,
everybody can understand instantly, you are free to add some.

Sorry, I don't consider it my job as an ordinary user without programming skills to fix things.
This is definitely the job of the developers.
My job as a user is to report things, when I find them.

Actually, I was thinking about offering my help already, but I don't even know, where to find the strings to be translated. (*)
Besides, there are cases where you need to know where a particular string is located in the system and what the related option is actually doing.
If you just have the string alone without knowing what it is supposed to do, a translation can still be wrong or misleading.

I strongly suggest to keep your posts in English, so everybody can understand what's going on.

(*)EDIT:
I just found that information in your link and I will have a look at it a.s.a.p..

I was that person who changed the "EFM starter" to "Desktop icons" after a discussion with Jeff. I never liked it and yes, nobody knew what EFM stands for. True is, some languages do not follow the main po moksha file. We need more translators for this project.

@madmax25

On sorting issue. I have no idea in the issue description what you mean. Your questions are often very vague. We need more info. In what application you have bad sorting? In PcmanFM or where? If in Pcman how could it be related to moksha? There are 2 independent pieces of software. For the future, please, better describe the issue with a screenshot. I really have no idea how to help you now...

Stefan

@maxmax incase you didnt know, its super easy to take screenshots of a window in bodhi. Click the icon on the top left of the window, and select 'take shot'. It usually puts the screenshot in your Desktop folder. It seems to me your files renamed themselves between your two examples, as well as being listed in weird order, but picture worth 1000 words.

Sorry, I just copied the 1st list, changed the numbers manually, but forgot the filenames.
Of course the files didn't rename themselves.
I just fixed them.
Now, the 2nd list is really as it appears in the actual folder.

Sorry, for not showing screenshots, but the files are... well,... sort of 'classified'.

The wrong order does indeed happen in PCmanFM.

But the weird thing about it is, that it affects only network folders.
Actually, I thought, it was clear, that I'm referring to PCmanFM, because talking about Bodhi, you usually access a network folder from within PCmanFM.

I mean, I access a shared folder on my NAS drive, try the different sorting options and then get the issue as described above.
As I already said, it does not happen in the previous Moksha, nor does it happen when accessing that folder from different distros.
Therefore, something in that new Moksha must be causing this.

Since I'm no programmer, you're definitely asking the wrong person about the context between Moksha and this issue.
