Batch deleting of desktop links possible in ROX? Subject description: erased in-camera link files
I am running BionicPup64 and normally there is no desktop app as default setup with Rox.
The problem started when I was downloading .jpg files from my Olympus camera during active USB transfer. By mistake I dropped hundreds of picture files to desktop!!. Now I have links to the erased files in my camera. I am able to remove one by one with right-click but since there are many, is there a batch command or Rox setup that can fix this?

into a terminal. the new pinboard should be lacking the icons you deleted the code for.
if you have no root1/left click menu, you should be able to select multiple desktop items and delete them by dragging the mouse with the left button depressed and then hitting delete or using the right click menu (iirc). you should also be able to batch drag items to relocate them this way.

The easiest way is to drag a selection around all icons, then remove them with only one "Remove Item(s)"
To make this work you'll have to temporarily change ROX default options:
1) Right-click any icon -> ROX-Filer -> Options -> Compatibility -> uncheck option "Pass all backdrop mouse clicks to window manager"
2) Select the icons you want to remove by pressing left mouse button and dragging around the icons. Right-click and select "Remove Item(s)"
3) recheck option "Pass all backdrop mouse clicks to window manager" and push OK
Above method works with whatever pinboard ROX currently uses, which - if you are a power user - may not be PuppyPin.
