Is it true that the only way to create a new desktop folder is to follow the instructions at the matchbox homepage? Since according to those instructions, ~/.matchbox/vfolders overrides (not appends) the /usr/share/matchbox/vfolders directory, I had to copy all of the files from /usr/share/matchbox/vfolders/ to ~/.matchbox/vfolders, add my new folder to the Root.order file & then create the new .directory file to have the new folder appear. Seems kind of a round about way, considering that to add a new desktop icon all one has to do is to create the .deskop file under ~/.applications/. smile.gif

Now I suppose I could have just altered the files under /usr/share/matchbox/vfolders, but I'm a purist that wants all of my settings kept under my user's home directory smile.gif.
