Whilst using some dotpups in Fluxbox I find that the desktop icons have "mini pop ups" (forget the correct term) whereas the default Puppy icons do not. How can these be created for our default icons. The icons also have a grey background with black text (Rox can change this with right click on icon rox file/options/pinboard) but by default how is a black outline with grey or white inner text (the text only - no background which is unprofessional)? Such text without a bar effect will show on all background images

you can add tooltips to rox appdirs
an appdir looks like a single executable file, but it's really a folder with files inside (right click the icon to Look Inside)

AppRun runs if you click the icon
.DirIcon (hidden file) is the appdir's icon
AppInfo.xml is where the tooltip is

open AppInfo.xml with a text editor ... the text between
<Summary> and </Summary> is the tooltip

Fluxbox doesn't work quite right with Rox
you may notice that tooltips won't appear unless there is at least one window open on the desktop ... Icewm seems to work well with Rox, and doesn't seem to have these problems
