I successfully created Home.lnk and I now have a Home icon on my desktop :)

 

table Icon

Caption: Home

Command: rox

Icon: /home/ikaro/.idesktop/home.png # the image to be used as an desktop icon

end

 

"Do the same for the other icons you want."

 

But when trying to make a custom icon/shortcut to xmms for example I get nothing.

 

table Icon

Captian: xmms

Command: rox

Icon: /usr/whereever/my/xmms/icon/is.png

end

 

After I < nohup idesk > /dev/null & >[/b] it doesn't show up on the desktop :(

I followed the instructions on the HOWTO Fluxbox - Icons using iDesk and I can't find any other documentation, not even on their homepage. Am I doing something wrong like perhaps the Command: ?

You need separate files per icon:

 

Home.lnk

table Icon
Caption: Home
Command: rox
Icon: /home/ikaro/.idesktop/home.png
end

 

xmms.lnk

table Icon
Caption: xmms
Command: xmms
Icon: /usr/whereever/my/xmms/icon/is.png
end

 

The command is whatever you would use from a terminal to open xmms.. :)

THANKS :D

 

I added an option in my Fluxbox menu

[exec] {nohup idesk > dev/null &} /blah.png

 

Starts iDesk just Perfectly, as opposed to inputting that in a terminal, exiting the terminal, and having iDesk quit :D

This is better ^_^

 

Check out your ~/.fluxbox/startup file.. you could also use ~/.xinitrc if you are using "startx"
