I probably forgot to mention, the pinboard must be restarted for the changes to take place. Easiest way would be to log out of X and then back in again, but it can be done by passing rox an argument also.
Code:
rox -p=[path_to_pinboard_file]

Or the way I do it, with the pinboard file where rox wants it:
Code:
rox -p=default

The first way is the appropriate way for Puppy.

I revised my default_filemanager script to include the following:

Code:

cat $HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin | sed 's/\/rox/\/dfmh/g' > $HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
cat $HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/globicons | sed 's/\/rox/\/dfmh/g' > $HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/globicons
cat $HOME/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons | sed 's/\/rox/\/dfmh/g' > $HOME/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons
rox -p=$HOME/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin


dfmh is just a script that executes:

defaultfilemanager $HOME

Everything seems to work good except the HOME icon on the pinboard changes to what looks like a sheet of paper with a terminal on top. What do I do to maintain the correct HOME icon executing from within a script?

That sheet of paper is the default icon rox uses for a shell script. Your script missed the proper globicons file I think, it should be:
Code:
cat $HOME/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons | sed 's/\/rox/\/dfmh/g' > $HOME/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/globicons

This discrepency exists because we used to have an older version of rox that kept it's config files in $HOME/Choices. All 2.xx versions of rox use a moe freedesktop compliant location $home/.config/rox.sourceforge.net for config files. In Puppy we still have /root/Choices just because the old pinboard file has not been moved, and it is called with it's full path from within .xinitrc.

I already had that in the script. I saw both globicons and did the same to both (not knowing which one really matters). Not sure why I get the other icon.

Just a shot in the dark, does your script reside in the exact same directory as rox, ie /usr/local/bin? The globicons file expects an absolute path.

I'll post my 0.2 version in a minute. Maybe someone can figure out why the icon changes (maybe it'll work fine for everyone else, I could've messed something else up).

I installed the program so that I could use a file manager with a more obvious find function, but then the desktop disappeared. I think the file that the program edits is also the file that controls the desktop. If you have a fix for that, please reply.
Also, the program won't even work.

Retro precise remaster
Openbox+lxpanel+rox-filer
Default filemanager produces lost pinboard and icons, every time i run from the menu.
