File manager/ Desktop updates

Post by psherma1 »

I updated ROX-Filer (arox on Absolute).
Uses pinboard for Desktop, put back
in drag-n-drop to "SendTo" and set icons.
(Because it really doesn't use XDG)

Changes to icewm include 2 major startup ones in startup.
/home/.icewm/startup
qtfm-t5ray is out,
arox pinboard is in:

#if [ -x /usr/bin/qtfm-tray ]; then
# /usr/bin/qtfm-tray 2>/dev/null&
#fi
if [ -x /usr/libexec/arox/arox ]; then
/usr/libexec/arox/arox --pinboard Default
fi

idesk is also gone,
udsikie is in:

if [ -x /usr/bin/udiskie ]; then
udiskie -a -s -n -c "/etc/udiskie.yml" &
fi

You can look in the new icewm package to see the startup file.
/root/.icewm/startup
or
/usr/share/icewm/startup


I did not pull qtfm or idesk from distro yet.
Folks doing rolling updates would have a bit of a shock until they
change their icewm startup file, so I will leave them around for a
few weeks and then make a new release.
