The command are very simple, I use them in my alias file. You could write script files and put them in as menu items also.

To hide icons:

rox -p=

To unhide the icons:

rox -o -p /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

i used to make desktop shortcuts that switched my pin files

for example:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# pin0
exec rox -op /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# pin1
exec rox -op 1

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# pin2
exec rox -op 2

executing pin0 from the CLI or a desktop shortcut displays the original pinboard

executing pin1 from the CLI or a desktop shortcut displays the the pinboard that's saved in a file called pb_1

executing pin2 from the CLI or a desktop shortcut displays the the pinboard that's saved in a file called pb_2

call the pinboards whatever you like
1 2 3 Susan John ... any name you like

this way you can organize your desktops better

for example, you could have a work desktop ... a multimedia desktop ... an internet desktop ... Susan's desktop ... John's desktop

all you have to do to switch desktop backgrounds is click the desktop icon

the desktop scripts can have an xli command to switch the wallpaper too, if you like

my pin1: http://tinypic.com/9lc2ts.jpg
