Hey, thanks for the answers.

@ Sylvander its a frugal install, i didn't read the benefits of 005, i'll check now. And i used that method you said.
Is it safe to remove the .pet? Will i have rox work as always?
If i can't make XFE the default, can i at least use the desktop drive icons but without poping up ROX-filer?

@ `f00

I didn't understand very well... doing that would work as i wanted?



thanks.

Subject description: ..
 

desktop driveicons are pretty much as they were originally set up to work with rox by BK (in other words, not for the faint-of-heart-nor-skill to change) but you can try if you're the adventurous type.

editing pmount is safer Wink

rox is basically good to go in the original sfs of your pup. "work as always" depends on what changes you've made, but it's fairly robust so.. (haha, I just remembered doing some things that fubar'd gtk a long time ago & that rendered rox and many other gtk-based apps temporarily useless but not xfe since xfe uses fltk)

the rox->openwith->xfe dodge I mentioned just in passing, there's a particular way to make it work properly as expected if I recall (why the Confused emoticon, I've only done it rarely)

good luck and have fun

a few this'n'that, fwiw:

lines for filetypes section of xferc to enable 2-4fs and sfs open(mount/unmount):
2fs=filemnt;2fs file system;2fs_32x32.png;2fs_16x16.png;;
3fs=filemnt;3fs file system;3fs_32x32.png;3fs_16x16.png;;
4fs=filemnt;4fs file system;4fs_32x32.png;4fs_16x16.png;;
sfs=filemnt;Squash file system;sfs_32x32.png;sfs_16x16.png;;
SFS-=filemnt;Squash file system;sfs_32x32.png;sfs_16x16.png;;

typical filetype entry etc:
png=gqview,gview,mtpaint;PNG Image;png_32x32.png;png_16x16.png;;
<ext>=<open>,<view>,<edit>;<a description>;<bigicon>;<smallicon>;;
note - full path(s) for open/view/edit may be used if desired

pmount I use (from q142) as a SAMPLE:
rename your original /usr/sbin/pmount to pmountOEM, then
rclick->Properties, Permissionstab and tick the execute flags to try this

I just edited pmount and now it doesn't open rox everytime i click on mount... but i want to make use of the drive icons on the desktop, i'd like to make them behave like pmount, when i click on a drive icon, mount it but don't open rox nor xfe. But that seems hard... so i think i'll just leave it as always.

thanks

1. "Is it safe to remove the .pet?"
Yes.

2. "Will i have rox work as always?"
Yes.

3. "If i can't make XFE the default"
At some time in the past...
I DID make Xfe the default...
And it worked OK...
But, when I didn't want it to open, it was such a HUGE window...
So I uninstalled it, so as to go back to ROX opening instead [its a nice/small window, and easy to close].

4. "can i at least use the desktop drive icons but without poping up ROX-filer?"
I've no idea how to do that.

When the Rox desktop icon is clicked ------->
I think this can be done by changing the desktop file
in /usr/share/applications/



or else change the description of the desktop icon

What should that setting be changed to?
If I wanted NOTHING to auto-run when I clicked on an icon for a partition on the desktop/pinboard.

Hey, i managed to make it work as i wanted. I don't know if it's allright or what, but i modified AppRun, which is in .pup_event, there are 4 lines about rox, changed 2 of them so when i click on the drives XFE opens, and the icons still refresh

-now with *fs mounting-

I have been using XFE for years, and the thing I have always wished it had is partition mounting.
Recent versions have partition un-mounting, so it will probably happen some day.

Using 1.32.4, and still not there.

Some of the whizz coders here could surely help the developer out by implementing mounting, I reckon.
