I'd like to be able to call the PCManFM preferences dialog from outside of the program. For instance, I'm setting up an Openbox environment with pcmanfm as the desktop+wallpaper, and I'd really like to be able to use my right click menu on the desktop, but I also want an easy-to-access preferences to be able to change said wallpaper,etc. So a command that I could call that would start up only the preferences dialog would be great.

    I would like to second this. I'm the developer of TinyMe, a PCLinuxOS based distribution which uses many elements of LXDE. For a future version, I would like to have PCManFM manage the desktop in TinyMe, but I would have to have a command-line way to launch the dialog so I can change the wallpaper.

    Either that, or if you could have a way to hook GPicView in with PCManFM and use GPicView. I actually think using GPicView would be better, because it gives you the option to see the picture.

    A third option comes to mind: add "Set as wallpaper" as a right-click option or in the drop-down menus.

    This has been implemented and should be closed.
