Meaning, how go I get the icons on the desktop of 3.3 to appear in 4.4.4?
I have the DSL book which contains v.3.3.
I might have overlooked this info on the wiki.

You can copy xtdesk (from /usr/X11R6/bin ??) and /home/dsl/.xtdesktop into your new system, and change /home/dsl/.xinitrc to load xtdesk instead of dfm
Posted by pcdoctor on Aug. 25 2008,10:47Ok. Is there any way to add icons to your desktop using dfm? I installed DSL 3.3 from the DSL book for my ten year old cousin. I'm wondering if I should install 4.4.4? Thx.

Posted by u2musicmike on Aug. 27 2008,21:23Is there a property to change the double click icon to single click in DSL 4.4.4? I just got so used to single clicking to open a program but I really like the look of DSL 4.4.4.
