Hi all,

I have a system with SLES 11 SP1 installed with IceWM and I would like
to have a desktop icon. I read on the IceWM website that a file manager
is required:
'IceWM FAQ and Howto: Miscellaneous Questions'
(http://www.icewm.org/FAQ/IceWM-FAQ-9.html#ss9.6)
IceWM supports several file managers as idesk, dfm, rox, kfm or gmc
'IceWM FAQ and Howto: Example: configuration A-Z'
(http://www.icewm.org/FAQ/IceWM-FAQ-10.html#ss10.3)
But non of them are not bundled with SLE11.

Could you tell me one file manager bundled with SLE11 and compatible
with IceWM?


Thanks and regards

Hi
Thunar is a lightweight file manager, it should be there?

Else grab a src rpm from here and rebuild

For folks trying this with v13, I managed to get rox-desktop working.

Get 0Install from here:
http://software.opensuse.org/package/zeroinstall-injector

Get rox from here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=7023&package_id=161987

Then unpack the archive, run the file in /bin, and Rox installed. Thereafter all my old desktop icons were there, and I could drag/drop new ones.

Hooray!! No more slow window-mgr (gnome/kde) AND desktop icons so you don't have to deal (as much) with the poor IceWM menu system, which is really the only useful thing lacking.
