Hi hats,

I'd be grateful if you posted the changes to remove the cicles.

OK, here is a patch.
Code Sample

   if (direntry->mark==True) {
   } else {

This changes the behaviour to:
- looks for the specified environmental variable
- if it exists, skip the drawing

I did it this way so it would not disturb the defaults (was the quickest way I thought of).
If you don't want this behaviour at all and would rather have the code left out, you could take out arcwindow*

Thanks for your patience in explaining that both of you.
I agree after reading what you've both said here that supporting older equipment is ultimately more important than these little extras.. and yes it's not worth extra scanning time on USB if that's what it would do....DSL runs so fast on old computers.....

Apologies about not noticing the CTRL key copy function....oops! :) You are right Robert, I'd not read Getting Started all the way must be a bit of a wind up...I will read it through properly.

That was a basic thing I should have's just getting used to doing something slightly differently from years of using windows.
I've just seen 4.2 now....I've been using version 4.1 up until now.......I promise not to mention anything about icon aesthetics lol!

I've just taken a look at's looking really good. I like the way you can instantly click on themes which get installed automatically....

For anyone reading my copy files to the desktop ( and to move )'s as clear as day on how to do it in 'Getting Started' which opens up first thing! It mentions Linux is not quite like Windows there's just a different approach to this and cutting n pasting. So the lesson is for me to Read The F****** Manual before making any user improvement interface comments! Sorry! :D
