Any new custom styles that were not included in the original livecd are stored in




But the file that keeps track of your in-use desktop is:


I agree with clivesay.

A good way to find out where all of your custom settings files are kept for each application is to open up the emelfm file manager and then push the "H" button at the top of the window pane.

This is because most settings files are either hidden files or are stored inside a hidden directory inside your /home/dsl directory.

In Linux, a file or directory that begins with a period "." is defined as a Hidden file and is not usually seen in the normal directory listing.

This can be a problem for the File -> Open dialog box for GTK programs like Beaver.  By default, they do not show the hidden files.

You can see them if you do the following:

Using your mouse pointer, click inside the Filename selection entry box.

Press the period "." button on your keyboard

Press the ALT button on your keyboard

The hidden files should then magically appear in the list.

Hope this helps.

This might be a good one to add to the DSL Documentation pages.

Thank you.  Added home/dsl/.fluxbox/init to filetool.lst, changed the Desktop Style, and restarted.  It works!

Thank you,
