Make Rox-desktop Permanent

By default, antiX uses the root window and does not set a desktop. It can be toggled from the fluxbox or icewm menus - WM's>Rox>Pinboard.

To make it permanent, right click the ~/.fluxbox/startup or ~/.icewm/startup file >open as text> and uncomment the 'rox' line to read:

# Applications you want to run with fluxbox.
# MAKE SURE THAT APPS THAT KEEP RUNNING HAVE AN ''&'' AT THE END.
#
# unclutter -idle 2 &
# wmnd &
# wmsmixer -w &
# idesk &
rox --pinboard=antiX &

Disable conky, by putting a # in front of conky & like this:

# conky &

Reboot into a Rox-desktop with icons on the desktop.

As from antiX-M8.5, Rox desktop can be automatically booted into by adding the cheatcode Rox at the boot grub menu in livecd/liveusb/frugal mode. If you then install to hard drive, the Rox desktop will be preserved. You can also choose Rox desktop at the SLiM login screen. Toggle F1 to choose Rox-fluxbox or Rox-icewm.
