To make Xfe the Puppy default file explorer...
Xfe will then automatically run and display the contents of a partition listed on the desktop, when you click to mount.

See post number 111 on page #5 of my Puppy Linux thread at the PC-Guide forums.
Lots of Puppy Linux goodies listed in that thread.

Or is post #105 better?

Forgotten which worked best. Confused

i edited the file /usr/local/bin/drive_all, but for the mounted icons in desktop is the same....rox still work.

I check in the file drive_all the command to change...
Code:
exec xfe -x /mnt/sdbx
in terminal and it works; so i think that the comands in edited file are right. but still rox works..

1. "i edited the file /usr/local/bin/drive_all, but for the mounted icons in desktop is the same....rox still work"
Hmmm, I'm no Puppy expert.
However, I tried following the above instructions by editing /usr/local/bin/drive_all so as to change all examples [2] of pcmanfm to xfe, and it worked.
Now when I click on any partition on the desktop, Xfe opens and displays the contents of that partition.

2. How about trying the alternative method given above?
i.e. Post #111.

ok....i tried with you instructions, changing Rox with xfe in every line of the text. but rox still works when i click on any partitons on the desktop.
Crying or Very sad
About the second method i have to install the .pet?

Is there not in jwmrc a line to set the default file manager?

1. "how can i change the themes in XFE ?"
With Xfe open...
Go to "Edit->Preferences->Themes->[I like KDE3, highlight it]->[click Accept]".

2. By-the-way...
Are all the little ghost-like icons beneath the panels white?
Click black icons to make them white, so that all hidden items become unhidden.

You need to refresh the icons. Or just replace the drive icon scripts (which are all the same.) "/root/.pup_event/drive_<DRIVE>/AppRun" with "/usr/local/bin/drive_all".

@ttuuxxx
Changed to this version of Xfe in Dpup-009, because the previous Xfe [Xfe-1.19.2.pet] wouldn't run due to missing the dependency = libFOX-1.6.so.0

But it has a peculiar behaviour as follows:
The title bar is ALWAYS off the top of the screen at the beginning of each new time I run it. Sad

Makes no difference if I rearrange it in a nice location.

Any way to fix this?

Probably in the same category as the question above, but...

is it possible to set the default window size in XFE? I've been though all the gui preferences and it doesn't seem to include anything for it. It's just kind of annoying having it open full screen all the time.

Other than that, this thing kicks butt compared to ROX.

I have a since discovered that it's possible to configure this version [use config tick-boxes] of Xfe to:

(a) Automatically save the window state/position at shut-down, so next time it opens in that state.

(b) Stop warning that the user is running as root.

See this bug when using Xfe in Lupu-520. Sad

I'm wondering if I need to edit /root/.config/xfe/xferc

See...
"need to edit /root/.config/xfe/xferc to have it automatically open with the correct programs (default* abiword, gnumeric etc... vs. openoffice progs) ... if someone does this please post the gzipped /root/.config/xfe/xferc and I will repackage it"
