Is there a way to add application icons to the desktop?
« on: 18. September 2015, 02:36:02 »
I see the icons in the Applications folder in file manager.
Any way to drag some to the desktop?

Thanks!

I just did a startpage.com search for icons on fluxbox desktop & this page was at the top of the list:

Search engines are useful. ;)

If you're using manjaro-fluxbox which comes with pcmanfm you can let pcmanfm handle the desktop which also give you desktop icons.
