I just did very primitive partial support for moving desktop icons.
Let’s see a screenshot.
Now the position of icons can be saved and restored, but there are sitll some bugs. As a proof of concept, however, it works already.
For the interested, the source code is in “move_icon” branch of our git repo.
So the desktop icons will become movable in version 0.9.8, finally.
Now PCManFM is much closer to a final stable release. This can become one of the best lightweight file manager ever.
