DOH! Now I feel retarded. Thanks Nightflier,
I don't have a home icon on my desktop any more after alot of customization or that would have solved that also.
I've been using the user account for like 6 months straight now and I completely forgot where to find that stuff while on the root account.
I really need to find more time to read a few more books on linux. Most of the time, I'm fine, even learning alot more with the cli but every so often I get stuck on something like this which is really simple (if you know how!)
I owe you a few beers by now for all your kind help, and a few others too. If you don't mind look at my xfce icons on the desktop question...
