I don't get what do you mean. Maybe you think that what i wanted to transmit was anger.
if it's, completely wrong.

Anyway if nobody can give a better solution than just "BURY" this is ended.

@lolo69

Did you have a look in /usr/share/applications yet? Please do!
If it is empty, look if you have /usr/share/applications.in and if it has anything, copy all in it to /usr/share/applications and reboot. You may recover some links on your desktop.

You mean no /usr/share/applications ? That explains it. And no /usr/share/applications.in either?
Do you have the .iso? Go in it and then go in the main.sfs (puppy_tahr???.sfs, look in it, do not install it) and copy /usr/share/applications from there into /usr/share.

No, I have a /usr/share/applications, but i don't have a /usr/share/applications.in.

Do you know which are the puppies which have the best compatibility, with apps, libs, etc?

And if you click on a appX.desktop, does appX work? Try geany.desktop or something.

I mean, you look in /usr/share/applications and click on some files there to see if that starts an application. Please test it.
And do the files there have an icon or not?

I'm using right now the iconless puppy.

In /usr/share/applications i click any .desktop and all works fine but none of them have icon.

I noticed i have an image that i can see using arcade puppy but here i just see this:

What I mean is that I (ego, moi, me) am a grouch (a complainer, a critic) sometimes.

If you do not have a /initrd directory, this would mean that you have installed Puppy
as what is called a "full install". Forum member "bigpup" asked you this in the 2nd
post, and you did not answer his question, as far as I can tell.

Do you remember what type of installation you did for your tahr Puppy? There are
three types of installation possible for modern Puppies:
-- full
-- frugal with pupsave file
-- frugal with folder

Do you remember which one you used? This is important, because the procedure
to get back your icons will be different for a full install than the one I presented
previously.

Also, please answer MochiMoppei's question? Please reread his last paragraph
from his post here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=980506&sort=lastpost#980506
and answer his question. If you have icons there or not will tell us a lot. TIA.

So it really is just the icons you are missing.
We are back at About #1 from Musher0.
You will need to copy
/usr/share/pixmaps
/usr/share/icons
/usr/local/lib/X11
from somewhere, because they contain most icons.
Instead of going to /initrd, you can go to the .iso of Tahrpup. By clicking you can open it and click on the puppy_tahr???.sfs to open it and continu to the 3 maps you have to copy. Copy these 3 maps in the right places.
Hopefully that will fix most.
EDIT: Musher0, sorry, I was writing while you posted.

Just another little test: if you click on a triangel on your desktop, does the application start?
It should because it is just a link to the .desktop in /usr/share/applications.

No problem, foxpup.

I think you are on the right path to a solution for this man.

BFN.
