Subject: [gentoo-user] Fluxbox Desktop Icons
Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 03:56:47
1 I am currently setting up some linux pc's for my old high school. I am
2 running fluxbox and have a default user account which fluxbox loads from so
3 no configs are saved to the home directories. This also prevents the users
4 from changing menu options, backgrounds and such permently.
6 What I am aiming to do is:
7 A) have the config file saved to the default user account and not the users
8 home directory.
9 B) have a "dynamic" icon that allows the user to mount or unmount their
10 flash drives.
13 I am currently using fbdesk which allows me to specify the config file
14 though I havent manage to find any documentation regarding this.
16 I have been looking at IDesk but I cant see any documentation regarding
17 letting you to specify a different location to the Idesk config file other
18 then under a users home directory.
