Currently using iDesk (http://idesk.sourceforge.net) for desktop icons, it would be nice if Xfe had this feature.

I think it could reuse the regular icon view. Having an icon on it for the Trash would be a nice feature.

    Hi,
    I don't understand how to integrate desktop icons in a file manager? Could you please explain more precisely your idea? (A screenshot could help...)
    Best regards,
    RB

    Basically a special desktop view is created (using the root window as parent)
    that has icon view and shows the contents of a special "Desktop" folder...

    The Xfce file manager (Thunar) has this optional extra feature, for instance.
    See also http://idesk.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Idesk-Screen for iDesk ?

    OK, I've understood what you want, thanks for your explanation. However I'm afraid that such a feature will not be planned in Xfe because in my opinion it's a desktop feature and not a file management task...
    Thanks for sharing your ideas,
    RB
