In Topic: Desktop is blank, would like icons

Yesterday, 05:20 AM

I am pretty sure pcmanfm is the default filemanager. If you search the forums, you will see other users explain how the "got icons on the desktop" via pcmanfm. Jeff, lead dev, has suggested adding an iBar to the desktop and placing shortcuts in it. I rarely see my desktop and even when I do/can I still either use the start menu or the Run Everything via the Win + Spacebar keyboard shortcut. Having shortcuts to documents is a whole different can of worms. I believe there has been a post or three about making such a shortcut.

In Topic: VLC question

Is the drive automounted at boot time? Can you access the drive through vlc after viewing the contents via your filemanager?

I do not know why you couldn't see it earlier. Given that Network is in the Categories list, it should indeed show up in the Internet menu, as far I know/understand.

 

I myself only know enough to be dangerous. :D Guys like The Waiter, Charles, Jeff and other know their stuff.

The applications directory is where most all of the .desktop files are stored. If you open WicdNetworkManager.desktop with a text editor. You should be able to look at the Categories line to see if Network is listed. If it is not, wicd is likely going to be in the 'Other' sub menu instead of the Internet sub menu.

It is possible that wicd ended up in Other instead of Internet. You may want to scan all the submenus just to make sure, Or, look for wicd.desktop in /usr/share/applications and open the .destop file with a text editor (don't forget sudo) and make sure that Categories includes Network.

 

I'll hush if I am causing confusion. :)
