For pinboard backgound I just right click on the pinboard and
drag & drop the pic i want.
for directories, from a filer window, I right click on dir,
select  `set icon` choose `for all files of type etc` and drag &
drop the .png I want for directories.restart xserver & job done.
Is rox-session really worth bothering about?.

I might try that the information that is on the wiki's and other information is not very clear about what arch is used. I do use Rox-session with Freebsd and use Flux-box as the window manager. I have used Wallpaper in the past to change the background, and I use to keep a file of pictures and change them out. I also had a bunch of various icons pictures so I could have all the cool looking icons I wanted.

Are you able to drop like mpeg2 or avi's on your xine icons, or mplayer icons to start playing movies, or clips? I just love that ability, it saves so much time then having to mess with cmd line, or start up mplayer, or xine.

Right now one of the problems keeping me from running Rox-session is a python-dbus dependence, which I have not been able to track down. I will do a follow up post to update everyone on the progress. I will sure try out the options of what Rox-filer has to offer, maybe I need to read the man pages, and documents for Rox.


I am using rox-filer 2.4.1 which is what comes with the debian distribution. It just works out of the box with apt-get install rox-filer. In that case all dependencies are automatically resolved. You are using rox-filer from somewhere else, in that case you have to resolve all dependancies yourself.
Just install via apt-get.
for window manager I am using sawfish.
jpeg bmp xpm png tiff and even svg all work fine. avi and other movie formats do not.
