ROX-filer

ROX is a desktop environment "based around the filer". It is acronym for RISC OS on X, an d tries to "bring some of the good features from RISC OS to Unix and Linux". Anyway, if you want it, you've probably checked it out already, so lets cut to it.

Installation

There are two ways to install it, the usual way, and through Zero Install.

pacman -S rox

Zero Install

Usage

File manager

rox

rox -b Default -p default ; exec openbox
