Sorry, language problem. I don't understand this sentence.

Well, this would never work since .desktop files are pure text files and you can't run them with bash, but are you saying that all your triangle ROX shortcuts contain links to /usr/share/applications/xxx.desktop files? This would mean that you created them manually because no decent installer would do that and that foxpup was - miraculously - right. But it makes no sense: When you open a ROX window and click on a /usr/share/applications/palemoon.desktop it is the same as if you would click on a ROX desktop icon that has "/usr/share/applications/palemoon.desktop" as its link address. Either both work or none works, both actions are controlled by ROX and ROX makes no difference.

Does any of your triangel shortcuts point to an address that is not a .desktop file?

Yes, almost every single one has a /usr/share/applications/xxx.desktop path.
I created them with PupMenuEdit tool.

But i just found that the console icon links to /usr/bin/urxvt, this because, most of default icons was erased by me from the desktop.

Are you saying that your "console icon" is not a triangle?

Please calm down. I already retracted my question while you were posting. I first didn't see you answer since you put it into an additional post on a new forum page.

No, it IS a triangle but the path does not lead to a .desktop file.

It is the answer of this question:

OK, and what happens when you open a ROX window and drag the file /usr/bin/urxvt onto the desktop?

Well, it generates a Triangle called urxvt and when you click on it the terminal start.

Quick answer: My own creation invented many moons ago to impress my girlfriend. Only genuine when drawn with a felt pen within 3 seconds Laughing

Interesting. And what should it generate? Please open /root/Choices/ROX-Filer/globicons. There should be an entry (and only one!) for /usr/bin/urxvt. Mine looks like this:
Code:
<rule match="/usr/bin/urxvt">
 <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png</icon>
</rule>

Code:
<rule match="/usr/bin/rxvt">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/usr/bin/urxvt">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png</icon>
  </rule>
  <rule match="/usr/bin/mrxvt">
    <icon>/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png</icon>
  </rule>

I got these three that are pretty similar.

That's what i ask, what were you hoping for? when you drag anything onto the desktop it creates a shortcut.

You told me that it generates a triangle and I asked you what (icon) it should generate. I know that it creates a shortcut...

Your globicons file looks normal and as you can see the expected icon is /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png.
Now go to /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps and click on console48.png. Verify that this icon indeed shows a console and not a triangle.

If the icon is OK, rightclick the urxvt triangle icon on your desktop and go to File 'console' (name may be different) => Set Icon.
The field "Drop an icon file here" should show /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png. Does it? If not, what does it show? And what happens when you drag the file console48.png into the field?
