This is a tiny screenshot of a corner of my sid desktop. It was taken with scrot -s to select a region.
The story behind these "weird" icons is as follows:
- I never use desktop icons. I love clean desktops and I get rid of any default icons. So this exception is a remarkable thing.
- These icons are a quick, dirty hack to halt and/or reboot the laptop. The reason being that the logout button does not allow me to perform those actions. I haven't been able to fix it so I added those icons which execute/sbin/halt and /sbin/reboot respectively.
In order to create those icons I browsed to the Desktop directory with pcmanfm then right click on the mouse and select Create New/Shortcut.
