hello all

I have install the stable xfce on my gentoo

unfortunately no matter how I try, I cannot get icons on the desktop

this is really bugging me as I work a lot with it

normally in the "settings manager - desktop - icon" I can choose to show 'nothing', 'minimized windows' or 'launcher icons' like trash and so on, but while I can use the 2 first options (minimized windows or nothing) and it works, if I choose to show launcher, I get nothing

I have installed a new icon pack, and selected it, but get the same result

any idea ??

super, it worked

I first emerge thunar, as I did not understand your answer, then I realize that xfdesktop was a package so :
Code:
USE=thunar emerge -av xfdesktop


log out log in, et voila

thanks papahuhn
