Sub_title: Lucid 5.2.8 w/libre: It is always below the other drive icons

Hello all, I've had this problem with my SD Card icon never staying where I put it on my desktop. I'm running Lucid 5.2.8 w/Libre office, frugal install.

My HDD has 2 partitions, and their drive icons appear wherever I put them.

When I reboot they are right where I left them, but my SD Card icon is always below my drive icons no matter where I place it on the desktop.

This got solved (on my other thread about a different issue) by modifying the file /etc/eventmanager

I will post my eventmanager file here for anyone else having similar problems.

Please note: I leave my SD Card in the laptop AT ALL TIMES. So if you want to "hotswap" like usual then this may not be the solution for you.

It might be a help to others if you said which version of Puppy you're using. Smile
