Re: Possible to Disable Desktop Auto Sorting of Newly-Created (Folder/File) Icons?

^ idesk does not support drag'n'drop if i remember correctly.

@op: lxde is lightweight; this means that not all features are available. it seems what you want is one of those features.

Re: filename extension/suffix

Linux is (was) about flexibility and choice given to the user. Filename extensions for files I create are my choice. You have taken away choosing to show filename extensions for 'registered' file types. Not cool. More than one person has requested that choice to show all file extensions/suffixes, y...

Re: Trouble with VLC

the usual first troubleshooting step is:
open a terminal, enter 'vlc', and post the output here. preferably between code tags. thanks.

Re: Possible to Disable Desktop Auto Sorting of Newly-Created (Folder/File) Icons?

Every time I create a new Folder or File on the Desktop (by right-clicking the Desktop and selecting 'Create New' from the popup menu), the newly-created requisite (Folder or File) icon is immediately aligned/moved on the Desktop, rather than it being placed precisely in the area where my mouse poi...

Re: CWD after opening file is home directory. how to change it?

If I double-click an executable program I will get a choice to run it. If I do so, then the program will be launched and its CWD will be the directory where I clicked it. And this is expected behavior. But if I double-click a different file which is not an executable program then it will open the f...

Re: Problem with .desktop files with version 1.3.0

i'm pretty sure pcmanfm has an option in its preferences to always execute executables, or ask. The problem is that the dialog box appears for entries in the lxpanel "application launch bar" and this is not wanted - it should behave like the menu..... that seems unlikely; did you create th...
