Running in Slacko Puppy 55 -- looks nice, I like it ! (I may use this instead of GNOME after all...) Just one problem: most of the icons are showing up as broken images (red 'x' on a dog-eared sheet of paper) which is a bit of an issue.

How can I fix this?

xfce-4.12-slacko.sfs + Slacko 55 + changes to .xinitrc as per this thread.

EDIT: also, background does not work either (plain dark-blue 'wallpaper', Nathan Wallpaper Setter does not work).

You must Change the Icon theme. By default, it uses Hicolor icon theme which is very incomplete.
Download a theme, and extract it in /usr/share/icons/ and switch to it.

Nathan doesn't work since it's designed for Rox. And XFCE uses Thunar.
To change the wallpaper : right click on desktop and, 'desktop settings'. Smile

I'm running 5.7.1. Retro 32bit. I downloaded xfce-4.12-slacko.sfs and followed the directions to modify the root/.xinitrc file and tried to reboot and hit F2 at boot up and jotted xwin xfce4-session but nothing happened. Could the hang-up also be because I previously tried loading up https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/92921108/Puppy/xfce-4.10-precise.pet but can't get rid of it now since I found the sfs?

Thanks for any hints!

Tried this and couldn't get anything to load up. Is this code supposed to replace code already in the ~/root/.xinitrc file or is this code supposed to replace everything in the ~/root/.xinitrc file??

Subject description: XFCE settings (video)
 

I run a Jejy's distro with XFCE. XFCE is a pretty desktop. Why do not issue a full distro with XFCE ? And furthermore in several languages, furthermore in a frenchy version ? Saluki is there, but i am a fan of Jejy's Versions.
