I just loaded Vectorlinux 6.0 on my IBM T22 laptop and I like the fell of it. I just can't seem to figure out how to place application Icons on my desktop. Can anyone help me? Thanks. . .

If you're using vector linux light or lxde then pcmanfm manages the desktop. In this case it's pretty easy to get desktop icons:

1. open pcmanfm
2. navigate to your desktop directory
3. open a tab and navigate to /usr/share/applications
4. drag and drop the applications into your desktop directory

HTH.

I moved this post. The FAQ section is not meant as a board to ask questions, it is where Frequently Asked Questions (and their answers) go.
