pcmanfm as desktop manager

Postby jbakshi » Fri Nov 28, 2008 6:51 am

Hello,

I have been using icewm + idesk combination since long and the filemanager is xfce. since a few days I am experimenting with pcmanfm and it is **Really what** I was looking for since long. I have also found that pcmanfm can be used as desktop manager too.

My present .xinitrc is as below

~~~~~~~~~~~`
idesk& # Desktop manager
chbg -scenario chbg.list & # for multiple wallpapers
icewm-session # Window manager
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


How can I use pcmanfm as desktop manager ? I think both idesk and chbg should be commented.

Thanks

In .xinitrc it would be

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
pcmanfm &
icewm-session
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks
