Please add a window role to 'pcmanfm --desktop', like 'desktop'.
This way we can, for instance, leave it out of the window list and quick switch (alt+tab) in IceWM.

    The desktop window is created with hint GDK_WINDOW_TYPE_HINT_DESKTOP which sets _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE property to _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DESKTOP so it should be skipped by WM for both pager and taskbar. If it isn't then that bug should be fixed in WM, not with some dirty workaround. Report it to IceWM instead, please. Thank you very much.

    Thanks for responding.
    In fact it is skipped from taskbar.
    It's present on alt+tab and it's useful as this way one can activate the desktop items with the keyboard.
    It would be more an extra feature.

    BTW, I noticed that pressing 'enter' when an item is selected on the desktop doesn't open it.
    Would that be a bug in pcmanfm or is it intended (as probably in openbox one can't activate the desktop from the keyboard, I suppose)?
