In my quest to go as lightweight as possible, I switched Thunar out for PCManFM. Works great with one exception. The removal of Thunar triggered the removal of Xfdesktop, which meant the next time I logged in no wallpaper, icons, etc. I can restore these things by running
in the terminal, but it must remain open in order to keep working. Furthermore, I don’t seem to be able to right click the desktop.
Does anyone have a more permanent solution to this than having a terminal open my entire session?
